This a question, not a judgement



  • I don't think it's so much what will enhance the effects of the drugs or the alcohol, or if your mind will be out in la la land... The biggest thing is that when mixing alcohol and pain killers, it takes a toll on your stomach lining and your liver. I had to take a chemical dependency course years ago, and learned all kinds of things. Also, there are certain meds that when combined with alcohol can give you seizures... Which you don't want, driving or not. So, I dunno. I think it just depends. I would say give it 6 hours, if it's break through pain meds, and 12 at least for long acting, before drinking anything. Better safe than sorry, right?

    Hope you're feeling alright<3 *HUGSZZZ*
  • Whether your on pain meds or not, why? If you are taking meds, it's simple, do not drink alcohol. Pain meds stay in your system for a long time so why chance it? I understand, so people don't drink and drive does that make it ok. Better, yes, but not totally safe. Why would anyone take the risk of drinking and taking pain meds. Why can't you just drink a non-alcoholic beverage?

  • I don't think that anyone would disagree with you that not drinking is definately the safest route to go.

    One Love,
