    Two drinks for me will put me on TOP of the table! LOL.

    Seriously, a wee bit of liquor (one glass of wine) definitely makes me tipsy compared to the old days when I could drink a couple of mixed cocktails and still be functional.

    Just wondering if anyone has been medically advised to steer clear of the demon liquid.

    Default hi

    Hi yes ...me....what a surprise. When i was taking anti depressants.Im not on them now, but have just started a new pill for anxiety and pain.My Doctor did tell me NO alcohol and it says it on the box. It interferes with the drug and can make you feel quite low or make the drug less potent.

    How are you today? xxx

    Hi Chas,

    I can't have a half of glass and I am snoring under the table and loopy!! I don't drink because of not tolerating it well. I was told not to drink it because of certain meds that I take.

    Take care,

    Faith

    I too am a cheap drunk...I feel the affects after one or two...depending on what the drink is. I first noticed it along with memory problems when I had a seizure eight years ago. They told me I had epilepsy. For 5 years I was on anti-seizure meds...until the docs in Stanford diagnosed me with Lupus and took me off the seizure meds. I don't drink often, but once in awhile on special occassions, I like to have 1 or 2....like I said cheap drunk, it doesn't take much.
    46 year old mother of two diagnosed with SLE 2 yrs ago.
    Meds: Plaquinil, azathrioprine, cymbalta, water pill, folic acid, low dose asprin, and a medication to help me sleep.

    I used to drink quite a bit in my younger days. That got old after a few years though. My neuro and rheumo have both told me a drink or two from time to time is OK for me. I'll have a Guinness once in awhile, or sip a shot of Patron when I go out for Mexican food. Like anything you consume, moderation is the best policy, and definitely make sure your various Dr's and specialists say it's OK, and that the alchohol will not have a undesired combined effect on any meds you are taking, especially pain and sleep meds.

    I had a small glass of bubbles last night at a dinner - 2 hours later a sinus flood begins. Maybe the demon drink isn't so good. Mt throat was so irritated. Or maybe it was the Malaysian food...oh...now I am re-thinking the whole deal. Will carry out this out again with bland food.
