Is A Bottle Of Wine Once A Week Okay
Probably unless?: Believe it or not problems with alcohol are not always defined by amount drank, but instead by what happens to you when you do drink. Do you engage in risky behavior, does it create conflict with others? I'm streching of course because I would suspect this would only be about 2 drinks max, right?

Drank about a bottle of wine a day for 1 or 2 years. A month ago, I cut back to 1-2 glasses a week- and I feel ok. Should worry of withdrawals now?

Hi I took 1mg of clonazopam about 24 hours ago, and now I just drank a bottle of wine. I am 285 pounds. Will I be okay?
Probably okay: There is enough of a time difference where there should not be much interaction as maximum blood concentration is achieved in up to four hours although elimination half-lfe is two days.

Could have been the half bottle of wine you drank. ...Read more
