Q&A: Alcohol with medication?

Question by Chelsea: Alcohol with medication?
I take these pills everyday, and on the bottle with all the warnings, it says “Do not drink alcoholic beverages when taking this medication.” I’ve been taking these pills for 10 years, and every time I drink I just don’t take the medication, which isn’t good at all, but I’m not sure if I’m just not supposed to drink alcohol when I swallow the pills, or if I just am not supposed to drink alcohol at all. Someone please help me understand so I can stop skipping them.

what are the pills or meds for?
u didnt say?
it means technically
no alcohol in ur system probably within 24 hours of taking ur pills
if u need the pills to maintain a serious illness or disorder
then stop drinking
its not worth it to stop ur meds
just cuz u want to drink
drinking is an option a choice
meds that are needed to control an illness or condition is not a choice

    You’re not supposed to drink it for three reasons:

    1: Alcohol makes you INCREDIBLY stupid, and pills increase that effect.
    2: Alcohol could also interact very negatively to your pills and create a fatal chemical reaction.
    3: It isn’t 1500 anymore. water is safe to drink, and ok with pills. 🙂

    My dear friend, alcohol and medicine taking together is throwing money in the drainage. Sheer waste of money. Now what you want to skip should be decided by you.
