Whiskey For Cough
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system.

If we are talking one drink and one tylenol every so often, it is probably not a problem. ...Read more

Not Effective: I guess if you're drunk enough, you won't care about your toothache for a while, but alcohol doesn't cure or help a toothache in any significant or long-term way.

Depends: If it was a matter of one episode of heavy drinking - a binge - it should be better by the next day. However, if you are a regular drinker, alcohol has many potential hormonal effects, and can lower testosterone and other hormone levels, and in very heavy drinkers that can be a long-term problem. If you have a drinking problem, see your doctor for help and/or a referral, if not - stop or cut down. ...Read more
Wrong question: The question isn't whether you CAN, the question is whether you SHOULD. Of course you can, and I am guessing that you either have or you probably will. One of the common causes of insomnia, that most doctors don't ever think of, is in people who drink regularly at night, which actually destroys normal sleep architecture and promotes insomnia. Whiskey on top of melatonin doesn't help, it hurts. ...Read more
How much whiskey?: Your risk of alcohol-related liver disease is largely dependent on how much you consume & for how long. If by "at least one whiskey/day" you really mean three or four, then yes you are placing your liver at risk. Risk is further magnified by added insults to your liver (medications, occupational exposures, underlying familial or viral liver diseases, or prior cirrhosis) as well as female gender. ...Read more

Not a good combo: Proper degradation of paracetamol depends on healthy liver and whiskey, especially in excess, is not a good thing for the liver. High doses of paracetamol and whiskey together can be quite dangerous--liver failure. I would advise good judgement on this one. You have only one liver! be good, be safe, be alive! consult doc if you need meds for treating pain/fever/headaches? Good luck. ...Read more
See an Allergist: An IgE immune response to whiskey would be quite rare, but possible. Rye allergy (reaction would occur with many beers also), or sensitivity to an additive would be expected.
