Which Is The Least Harmful Form Of Alcohol To Drink
Why do you ask?: The danger comes from the amount of ethanol you take in. If sounds to me as if someone is putting pressure on you to drink and that you don't want to. Good for you. Of the alcoholic beverages, beer and wine are less associated with people actually drinking to get drunk, which hopefully isn't something you'll want to do often. I used to ask for a 'virgin mary' -- looks like alcohol but isn't. ...Read more

Is drinking about 3 cocktails a night harmful for your health? Each cocktail has about 1 shot of 40 proof alcohol?
Yes: Moderate consumption is considered 1 drink daily for women and 2 for men. Drinking only once a week but consuming all 7/14 in one day does not count and would be considered binge drinking. Women are more susceptible to alcohol in its short term and long term effects and there are genetic non-gender differences as well. Aging and addition of RX meds like cholesterol meds puts more stress on the liver. ...Read more
Depends: Both alcohol and nsaids are irritants of the lining of the stomach, so they are dangerous to take together, especially if you are sensitive to them — can cause gastritis and bleeding from the lining of your stomach. If you can avoid alcohol while on nsaids, that is best. Treatment for gastritis would include Omeprazole (otc) 20 mg twice daily for 1-2 weeks. ...Read more
Not able to compare: Is it better to eat rat poison or insecticide? Cannabis & alcohol can adversely effect health. Both can also have limited positive effects on health.

I am suddenly getting so many adverse reactions when I drink alcohol and struggle to sleep. Why could that be?
Can I (not should I) smoke weed/drink alcohol in moderation while taking lamotrigine? Any adverse reactions? Just want to know if I can, not should I.
Depends on what you: Mean by "moderation." Also, depends on whether your doctor is aware of your use of alcohol and marijuana. You are likely being treated for bipolar disorder, and there are many with this condition who can be worsened by either/both of these drugs. In small doses (1-2 standard drinks/d) it is not likely to have major effects, but can have drug-interactions and cause problems in higher doses. ...Read more

Would smoking cannabis or drinking alcohol with a brain tumor cause it to have potentially harmful or adverse effects on the person;make tumor worse?
Probably not.: Those substances have little in common other than being considered 'bad' by some people. Medical cannabis is thought to be very helpful for cancer patients in many ways. I've not heard of alcohol's benefits, if any, but no problems either. Relax. Consider asking the oncologist involved for an opinion. Best! ...Read more

See a GI doctor to evaluate this further especially if it doesn't get better after cutting back/stopping alcohol. ...Read more

Pregnancy: While alcohol has been associated with certain birth defects and syndromes, there is not a correlation with a certain number of drinks and these effects.

Sorta kinda: In low doses (1 standard drink=6 oz. 10% wine, 1 1/2 oz 40% distilled sprits=12 oz 6% beer) — 2 drinks/day for men, 1 drink/day for women and older men, and no more than 4 drinks on one occasion, alcohol may have a beneficial effect on raising the "good" cholesterol hdl. Red wines, with resveratrol, may have a slight edge, but so does red grape juice. Above that amount, it does more harm than good. ...Read more
Milky mixed drinks: There are 3 kinds of galactosemia, gal-1-put deficiency is most common and is considered "classic". This can cause liver damage (and worse) if you eat foods with lactose or galactose. Ethanol itself is not a problem. Milk would be far worse. So avoid any alcoholic drinks mixed with milk ingredients (eg, white russians). If you have any liver problems, then don't drink alcohol at all. ...Read more
