Non Alcoholic Beer Hangover
Avoid carbs: Assuming you are taking Diflucan (fluconazole) for a yeast infection, it would be best to avoid foods and drinks that turn to sugar in your body, including alcohol free beer. There seems to be a misconception that beer without alcohol is low carb but in fact one bottle can contain 13-15grams of carbs. Yeast live on sugars/carbs so a low carb diet that is preferable gluten -free as well, is best. ...Read more

Does alcohol free beer have any effect on AST , ALT and alkaline phosphatase, in someone with liver metastases from colon cancer on chemotherapy fuda?
There isn't any: I think you have this backwards - IT IS THE BEER YOU NEED TO AVOID TO PREVENT HANGOVERS. All forms of alcohol can cause hangover, but they are more common in darker forms of alcoholic beverages = whisky, red wines, beers. The way to prevent hangover is not to drink to excess. If you have frequent hangovers yet continue to drink heavily, you have an alcohol problem. Talk to a counselor or doctor ...Read more
Alcohol withdrawal: part of the hangover is short term alcohol withdrawal. Anytime somebody has more than about 4 drinks, they will go through a short period of alcohol withdrawal, which shows up as anxiety, shaking, shortness of breath, high blood pressure and a fast heart rate. The only good way to deal with this is a medication called beta blockers, such as propanolol. You will need to see your doctor for that. ...Read more

I drink 6-10 beers twice a week. Never have hangovers. Is this enough to be dependent? When does withdrawal occur? I'm trying to be proactive here.
12-20 a week considered more than moderate drinking for a man. Recommended not to go beyond 4 drink in a day. And not more than 14 a week.
While my personal understanding of moderate is 4 a week. ...Read more
I drank too much alcohol beer and liquor, but i threw it up, well i still have a hangover if i threw it up, well i feel a bit better?
Perhaps: You need to carefully replace fluids. You have lost some electrolytes like pottasium and sodium from the vomiting no doubt. A sports drink (without glutamate or aspartate) along with water should help. Don't drink too much water (or alcohol) in the future. Think about the concequences (how you feel now for example) it might be time to address what you describe as heavy drinking. Be healthy. ...Read more
I had 1 beer last night and took my hydrocodone and risperidol i woke up not feeling well kinda with the worst hangover of my life why is that?
Magnification: The combination of hydrocodone and alcohol magnified the effects of Risperdal and vice versa. In general, alcohol should not be used with either hydrocodone or Risperdal, even in small amounts like one beer. Is Risperdal an effective medication for the listed clinical conditions of anxiety and depression ; there may be more effective medications available that are much safer with alcohol. ...Read more

Highly likely he is: although you diagnose alcohol problems not strictly by how much someone is drinking and more by how much harm it is doing to their life, nobody can drink 30 beers in the course of a drinking episode without being HIGHLY tolerant to alcohol (it is equivalent to 1 1/2 liters of vodka). Anyone who tolerates that has to be LOTS drinking daily or close to it, and likely has the associated problems. ...Read more
Both are bad: Mixed drinks and beer are the same after a fashion. The rule is alcohol in the drink. Making a mixed drink, you may get more alcohol in the drink than the 1oz the drink calls for. Beer can vary with alcohol by volume (german weiss/wheat beers versus american lagers). So neither is better. ...Read more
I am an alcoholic. i drink 15 beers every day. Would you consider this a health risk in withdrawal?
If you withdraw suddenly, it may be risky. However, you are on the right track and quit your drinking over a few weeks. Take multivitamin supplements to correct your nutritional deficiencies.
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.

Tough; case by case: Most individuals who have struggled with alcoholism in past and can drink in moderation after a sustained period of abstinence only if they have done the recovery work of building relationships and routines that are supportive of health and not tied to drinking. It is still risky. I've known people who thought they could do it after 20 years of sobriety and couldn't. Consider the risks. ...Read more

Diagnosed with alcoholic hepatitis about a year ago - can drink at all? And why do I get drink off just 1 or 2 beers now? My husband was diagnosed with alcoholic hepatitis about a year ago... He served in the military where they treated him a disease
He gets drunk after just a beer or two now because of his alcoholic hepatitis. The hepatitis means that his liver cells have become inflammed (injured). The unhealthy liver cells can no longer metabolize (break down) the alcohol he drinks. When his liver was healthier, the cells could metabolize the alcohol. If he continues to drink, he may well develop cirrhosis. Cirrhosis destroys liver cells and creates fibrous scar tissue. Since we need our liver to metabolize a lot more than just alcohol, it is essential to live. Please look up alanon in your yellow pages.
