4 days ago I had 4 wisdom teeth removed and was prescribed 20mg of celebrex, codeine, and 500mg of antibiotics to take everyday for the next 2 weeks. The celebrex says not to consume alcohol while being medicated on it but can I if I miss out 1 day.
No: Follow Oral Surgeon"s instructions to the letter. Alcohol coupled with missing proper antibiotic dose can alter the titer in your blood stream, exposing you to infection flare-up. Alcohol and pain meds can potential each other, making it unsafe for you to drive or make cognitive decisions. No, skipping meds and substituting alcohol is at best foolish, at worst dangerous. ...Read more

Its okay: One missed dose will have little significance. Like most drugs, it stays in your system for a while and the effects/benefits last beyond the dose taken. Studies have shown that even when hormonal therapy is discontinued at 5 years, the curves plotting benefit continue to separate for several years afterwards. ...Read more

Drug doseages: Probably nothing if its just one dose. You will not get the benefit of the drug [or any drug for that matter] if you do not take it as prescribed regularly. You see, the way the body metabolizes or breaks down a drug is different for each particular medicine which is why some are once a day and others 4 times a day. You need a certain blood level of the drug for it to work right. ...Read more
Report it: When you miss a dose of peg interferon, you should report it to your treating physician. If it is just one dose, chances are you may have it injected later that day or week. If it is not feasible, I think you will still need to continue on with your treatment, as one dose is unlikely to change the trend you've had. Talk to you doc, though. ...Read more
What if I miss a dose of digitalis? I just realized that I missed my morning dose of digitalis. Should I take it now, or wait until my next dose?

Likely nothing...: Clomid (clomiphene) has a relatively long half-life, meaning its metabolites last a fairly long time in the blood to give the desired effect.
