How can using mouthwash cool mint listerine (21.6% alcohol)as directed not drinking) cause a positive beathalyzer reading? Please explain in detail.
Alcohol: Alcohol absorbs through the tissues in your mouth. Every single drug screening or treatment program I know tells every single patient this and that this type of product is not acceptable if one is being tested for alcohol. Putting listorine into your mouth is the same as drinking alcohol. The taste alone often triggers patients back into relapse. ...Read more
Either: Both types of mouthwash are going to have agents in them that will kill bacteria that tend to cause bad breath. If you are aware of halitosis, be sure to brush your tongue well, especially toward the back. This is a common source for bad breath. Also be sure to get your teeth cleaned at the dentist if it has been a while. Mouthwash helps, but often just covers up the real problem. ...Read more

Can flagyl and/or ciprofloxacin in combination with alcohol cause a higher breathalyzer reading and/or cause alcohol to remain in your system longer?
Why do you ask?: Your doctor must have told you not to drink while you're taking flagyl. It's quite dangerous. And while you're on "Cipro", both alcohol and caffeine are best avoided. They won't actually raise the level. If you failed a breathalyzer, you need both a good lawyer and an eagerness to make sure that nothing like this ever happens again. Best wishes. ...Read more

If alcohol drinking leads to oral cancer, then does this mean that using mouth wash also may cause cancer?
Good question: Alcohol, by itself, is not nearly as strong a risk factor for oral cancer as alcohol and smoking. Inflammation of the oral cavity can increase the risk of oral cancer. Most alcohol based mouth rinses are formulated not to irritate and therefore have significantly less of a carcinogenic effect. ...Read more

Should be OK: Flagyl (metronidazole) has a very nasty drug interaction with ethyl alcohol (the drinking kind) in which it converts it into formaldehyde. So you will be speeding up your autopsy by the pathologist. There are medicines which contain alcohol and foods too, so check carefully! ...Read more
