How safe is orlistat if taken 3 times a day? What woykd happen if i take it more than 3 times a day?
Med interactions: It is smart to be aware of the risk of interactions with medications and substances such as alcohol. Ibuprofen usually lasts in the system for around 6-8 hours (varies depending on how fast someone metabolizes it), so it should be metabolized by the time you are wanting to have a drink. ...Read more
NeedAHairOfTheDog??: A perfect time to wake up with a hangover, right? So yes, take a dose of that good ol' acetylsalicylic acid! One dose won't hurt, unless your stomach is already burned raw by too much alcohol, or you're allergic to it. But keep in mind that Tylenol (acetaminophen) will usually work just as well and is less likely to upset your stomach.If you are taking aspirin for a medical reason then shame on you! ...Read more

If I smoked weed about an hour and a half ago is it okay to take a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (25mg) before bed ?
Don't do it.: My best medical advice is don't smoke weed or combine this activity with other drugs. There is widespread minimization of the effects of smoking weed. Several states in the U.S. have "legalized" it's use, but it is NOT a benign drug. I have seen patients get psychotic on this drug. Talk to your doctor before using and before combining with other drugs. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If I haven't had skelaxin (metaxalone) 800mg for 36 hours, is it ok to consume alcohol? How long after alchohol should I wait to take it?
Not harmful but why?: Why would you take dulcolax once a week and why on sunday? Dulcolax is a stimulant laxative which should only be used for significant constipation, when other means (hydration, fiber, stool softeners) haven't worked. Overuse (much more frequently than once a week) can be dangerous. Are you taking more than 1 tablet? ...Read more
I had quite a few alcoholic drinks about 24 hours ago, is it safe to take my tylenol (acetaminophen) 3 dose or should i wait longer?
Safer to wait: In general it is best not to combine alcohol with controlled medications. You run the risk of accidental overdose, respiratory suppression and aspiration. When it comes to metabolism of alcohol, the blood level declines in a predictable way. Better wait since we don't have enough information. ...Read more
Not a good pain: Regimen. I would not recommend taking vicodin and oxycodone. They can compound on each other and should not be taken within four hours of each other. That being said, you should really have a prescription for both. I would talk to my doctor to get set on a better and more appropriate pain management regimen. ...Read more
How long should I wait to take a dose of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) after having an alcoholic drink?
I just had 3 and half beers. I have drank about three drinks a night for the past two weeks. Is it ok to take .5mg lorazepam after 12 hrs not tak reg?
PLEASE DO NOT: Please do not combine alcohol with lorazepam. It can be a deadly combination. You've written in your additional "clinical findings" that you're on citalopram also. Drinking alcohol while on citalopram and other ssri's is a dangerous combination also. Not only can you become intoxicated sooner -- but if using citalopram for depression, alcohol can worsen it. ...Read more

I took a one time dose (150mg) of fluconazole 24 hours ago. Is it safe to have an alcoholic drink tonight?
Yes, if . . .: Check out http://www.drugs.com/mtm/fluconazole.html for more info on antifungal fluconazole. Assuming that you're not pregnant, one alcoholic drink tonite should be fine (two if you're a guy) after fluconazole yesterday. This also assumes that you don't have any liver disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is Zantac (ranitidine) 150 a bandaid solution or could it really help? Should I take it before I drink coffee or alcohol or is it meant to be taken regularly?

My hida scan done came back functioning at 22%. I am miserable with acid reflux. I am taking Zantac (ranitidine) with no relief. What can I eat or drink to help?
I get immediately flushed/splotchy when I drink alcohol, and to prevent that I have been taking Zantac (ranitidine) each time before I drink. Is that safe?
It's ok: I can't see how it could cause any problems. Zantac (ranitidine) is an antihistamine that decreases stomach acid production, so there shouldbn't be any interaction. It could be that you are getting a histamine release with the alcohol. You might see if it's with all alcohols or a component in the alcohol or if an antihistamine like loratidine or Cetirizine would help. ...Read more

I got off nexuim for 3 days to see how I do i burning now I will get back on it.i just took one but can't wait 24 hours can I take a Zantac (ranitidine) now ?
Okay together: There are no known interactions between Nexium (esomeprazole) and Zantac. In fact, when symptoms are not fully resolved with Nexium (esomeprazole) alone, patient's are often instructed to take Nexium (esomeprazole) in the morning and Zantac later in the day. I see no reason why you can't take Zantac temporarily, until the Nexium (esomeprazole) kicks back in . If the burning persists despite both medications, see your family doctor. ...Read more
What happens if I take an aerius 5 mg tabletdo I have to take a Zantac (ranitidine) 150 mg one (hours later)?
Can you take a dissolvable paracetamol two hours after taking propranolol and three hours after taking Zantac?
Yes: There are no interactions between those drugs ...Read more
Not recommended: Risks outweigh benefits. Taking three 150 mg pills probably would not cause toxicity though it also would not likely provide more relief. Current recommended dosages for Zantac (or ranitidine) for most conditions is 150 mg twice daily or 300 mg once at bedtime. Patients with erosive esophagitis may benefit from 150 mg four times daily but dosages are about every 6 hours, not all at once. ...Read more
How many tablets of Zantac (ranitidine) 150 does it take to overdose? Suppose to take two but took three instead
You : You are correct - the maximum dose of Zantac (ranitidine) is 300mg or 2 tablets. That being said, accidentally taking an extra one once should not be dangerous. If you have any specific concerns you can always call the poison control center toll free at 1-800- 222-1222. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How long will it take to get a one time dose of 150mg of Zantac out of your system after taking it?
Zantac is not a substance of abuse and would not need to be tracked for elimination from the body. Most of it would be out of your system in a day or so.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
