One glass: You are already taking a couple of sedatives. Combining with alcohol can be dangerous. Would limit to one glass a day max. If you need more to relax then maybe you need to look into other techniques like exercise, yoga, stretching, meditation etc. ...Read more

I drank a glass of wine i took flexerol last night will i be ok it's 10 hours later?

OK: Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) lasts from 6 to 8 hours and the wine you drank shouldn't interact with the last Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) dose. Since Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is a distant relative of tranquilizers, you shouldn't drink alcohol when Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is active in your system however. ...Read more

I was tipsy for 4 hours on ½ a glass of wine with food (160 lb female, never drank before). Is there something wrong with me?

Drink Responsibly: There is nothing wrong with you. Tolerance to the effects of alcohol build up over time, which is why people often need to drink more and more to get the same effect. The less you drink, the less you need to get the same effect. If you must drink alcohol, it is very important to learn to drink responsibly. www.enjoyresponsibly.co.uk/tips-on-sensible-drinking/ www.wikihow.com/Drink-Responsibly ...Read more

Is it safe to take .25mg of alprazolam 3 hours after a glass of wine?

Is it safe to take .25mg of alprazolam 3 hours after a glass of wine?

No no! : alcohol and benzodiazepines can be a lethal combination. You will not get a physician on here to give you the OK to take the pill any periodof time after drinking alcohol. That discussion should be had between you and your primary care physician that prescribed you that medication. Keep in the back of your mind by mixing those two it can be lethal and I have seen it myself multiple times. ...Read more

I would like to be able to have a glass of wine without getting a headache within a couple hours. Any suggestions (besides motrin)? Even tried organic

Difficult: The cause of headaches with moderate wine drinking is a mystery; some people find that red wines are worse than white; is this true for you? While much has been written about sulfites in wine (antibacterial), there is no good evidence that this is the culprit; there are many biological active compounds in wine and any one of them could be a culprit for any person; some say delectus wines are diffe. ...Read more

Risky: There are no serious professionals who will sanction it. The potential for danger is significantly increased. Both depress central nervous system functions and that's bad.
