See a doctor: You did not mention how old is Lewis and how long he has had the white spots. This information might be helpful but it still is going to be very difficult to come to a diagnosis without having them visually inspected by a physician, preferably by a dermatologist. ...Read more

If I drank about 5 1/2 shots of captain morgan from about 7 pm until 10 pm will I be ok to pass a breathalizer at 730am?

If I drank about 5 1/2 shots of captain morgan from about 7 pm until 10 pm will I be ok to pass a breathalizer at 730am?

Drink and Drive=No: Who cares about the breathalyzer. Do not put yourself or the general public at risk by attempting to do things like driving or operating heavy machinery if there is even a remote possibility you are intoxicated.

But if you must know: the average person will completely metabolize. 5-1oz of hard liquor per hour. So you might not pass your test. ...Read more

I drank about 5 1/2 shots of captain morgan from 7 pm-10pm. Can I pass a breathalizer at 730am? I drank a lot of water and ate lasagna as well.

I drank about 5 1/2 shots of captain morgan from 7 pm-10pm. Can I pass a breathalizer at 730am? I drank a lot of water and ate lasagna as well.

You might pass: A drink with 1 oz of 40% by vol liquor should be gone in one hour. To legally pass the breathalyzer after 5 1/2 shots of captain Morgan you need approximately 10-12 hours. Coffee, diet coke, food, exercise, water, or prayer will not speed the process. Good luck. ...Read more

Probably: Most people burn one shot of alcohol per hour. You write both in the past and future tenses. This much alcohol in this length of time does predict trouble in the future, especially now that you're a little older and should know better. It sounds as if you need a good attorney -- there are problems with breathalyzers and their operators. ...Read more

Consult Dr. Lewis: Check and see if Dr. Lewis has a Healthtap Concierge practice. If he does not, start another consult on Healthtap Prime. You will likely get another doc but your chart will be there for that doc to review. That doc may or may not write for the Flagyl, depending on the new assessment made. Have your husband create an account and consult as well: either with Dr. Lewis or on Prime. ...Read more

If I drank a pint of Captain morgan within a 4 hour period from 6pm-10pm and drank a lot of water will I be able to pass a breathalizer at 8am?

Stop this: I believe we've heard from you a few days ago with a similar question. What you're suggesting is a very bad idea. You shouldn't drink this much hard liquor this fast, or then plan to beat a breathalyzer. You're in your physical and intellectual prime. There are so many other things you could be doing that are safer and ultimately more fun. ...Read more
