I take an im injectable medicine and forgot to swab off the top w alcohol. Should I consider it contaminated or is it still ok (just forgot that once)?
Why take a chance?: There are articles (here's one: http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pmc/articles/pmc272643/pdf/jcm00139-0223.Pdf) that say contamination of a multidose vial is not a significant risk. Nevertheless there is a chance you pushed some bacteria into the vial, and i know my wife (a nurse) would say throw it out and start a new one. Why take the chance? Medicine is (relatively) cheap, infections are expensive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes: Methotrexate (mtx) can be taken either orally or by injection. While the pills are more popular, the self-administered injections are cheaper, often better tolerated, and sometines more effective.

It is possible: Consuming alcohol and make you gain weight and can also affect your liver. Both of these things can make it more likely to develop spider angiomas, which are like clusters of thread veins.

Would wait longer: Although most of the effects of morphine may be gone by now, it is still "in your system." Both morphine and alcohol depress the central nervous system & the combination can be very dangerous. This is true of any narcotics. I would not drink any alcohol until you've been 24 hours without narcotics. If I can be of help, then join my care team & virtual practice at www.healthtap.com/dr-ClarkeHolmes ...Read more

I have elavated liver enzyme do to alcohol, stoped drinking but still have anxiety issues real nervous person. Is it ok to inject "bejoyecta" its b12?
I am concerned: about ANYONE who would ask that question, and that concern is that you have either alcohol abuse or dependence. You are also on Flagyl, which has an antabuse-like reaction if alcohol is taken with it. You should be asking this question of your doctor, but I strongly suspect you know what that physician would say, and that is why you are asking online. Discuss your drinking with a counselor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I may have a peptic ulcer can I inject myself with alcohol if so how much and what would be the best spirit to use thanks?
NOT a D.I.Y. project: There are successful treatments of bleeding peptic ulcers with endoscopic ethanol but this is not a procedure to be done for yourself. It is not the kind of alcohol used for drinking. And, not to be a party pooper, but it would be a very good idea to limit drinking to as close to none as you can at least until the ulcer is well healed. Smoking is also irritating your cells. Enjoy yourself later. ...Read more
