If you were a mouse: If you were a mouse then, by taking that extra pill of famotidine you may've severely blocked ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament of the spine but in the human condition.....you're good to go....unless you weigh as much as a mouse.

Should you drink alcohol, if going to have one or two cups, after or before taking beta blocker medication metropolol 25 mg.?

Should you drink alcohol, if going to have one or two cups, after or before taking beta blocker medication metropolol 25 mg.?

Not a good idea: Its never a good idea to mix medication with alcohol. Although there is not a direct reaction between alcohol and a beta blocker the efffect of alcohol on blood pressure and pulse rate may make immediate use of either after the other a bad idea. To be safe I would take the beta blocker either in the morning or just before bed so that alcohol can be taken at the "usual" cocktail hour time!

Yes, should be fine: If a person has knowledge of nutrition and has a very balanced diet, then he may not need to take a daily multivitamin because his foods contain enough. I recommend each person take a multivitamin because many people don't have a truly balanced diet. Some people need more vitamin d, calcium, folate, omega3, etc..., depending on individual issues.
