I drank 8 beers and need to take a Breathalyzer in 24. will it detect any alcohol? I weigh 160lbs and drink beer regualry

I drank 8 beers and need to take a Breathalyzer in 24. will it detect any alcohol? I weigh 160lbs and drink beer regualry

You'll be fine: That's a lot of beer, though. You could probably get happy with a lot less, or maybe even just the good company. If you look at studies of how guys do with alcohol, if you have five or more drinks at one setting more than twice a month, you're headed for unhappiness. I'm glad you're still trim, and I'm thinking maybe you'd actually have more fun in the gym than the tavern. Best wishes.

Is it ok to drink beer and take flexeril, (cyclobenzaprine hcl) or should both be spaced out a certain number of hours?

Is it ok to drink beer and take flexeril, (cyclobenzaprine hcl) or should both be spaced out a certain number of hours?

I'd avoid alcohol: I would recommend completely avoiding alcohol and all other sedatives while taking Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl). The combination of taking the two could be dangerous in the regard of increased drowsiness and sedation. You may also be taking pain medicine, which would also be a complicating factor. Please avoid all alcohol until you have discussed this with your treating physician.

I take pristiq (desvenlafaxine) 50mg when I wake up in the morning. I take Xanax XR 2mg before bed each night. Is it safe to drink beer on these medicines?

No: I would find it very hard to believe that your doctor or pharmacist did not warn you not to drink alcohol with these medications. Please take use of these medications seriously. Drinking on this combination is equivalent to not being compliant with treatment.

Hello!! I'm suffering from irritable bowel syndrome and my bowel hurts when I drink beer or I eat some food like chips. Should I take a painkiller when I feel this insufferable pain or should I take antispasmodic like buscopan? Also when I'm out every n

Hello!! I'm suffering from irritable bowel syndrome and my bowel hurts when I drink beer or I eat some food like chips. Should I take a painkiller when I feel this insufferable pain or should I take antispasmodic like buscopan? Also when I'm out every n

Avoid the foods: I think the best answer would be to avoid the beer and chips and opt for choices that don't cause insufferable pain. If you get the pain then either medication can help. Pain meds can cause constipation so if you have IBS that is predominantly constipation I would avoid opioid pain medications.

Is it possible for me to drink beer with a uretal stint?

Is it possible for me to drink beer with a uretal stint?

Yes: You can drink anything you want with a ureteral stent, but how much beer are we talking about? Safe drinking limits in women are no more than one standard drink (a 12 oz. Beer) daily. Alcohol impairs healing after any surgical procedure, and also decreases our immune response to infection, so if the stent were just placed, I would not recommend it. If you are drinking more, consider counseling.
