Hi. Wait people. Drinking alcohol is a depressant. Of course you will feel terrible the next day with the meds we are all on. I am not trying to be rude, but don't drink. This should have been told to all of us by our doctors.etc. I had drank an entire bottle of Irish Creme around XMAS last year. Oh my, I felt really bad the next day for a week. I honestly thought I was going to end up in the hospital or WORSE.
If you really need a drink, have a very small glass of white wine (sugar level 2-VQA-I used to be a certified bartender). One small glass will relax you but not make you feel rotten the next day. But again, I would not recommend anyone drinking on the meds were on.
You are wise and I like your advice. No one is judging anyone here, just makes good sense as alcohol is a depressant and if you feel sad the next day and are having trobule with recall, and on meds................your setting your self up for a major crisis.
I wish you all peace and happiness.
Hi Kitt. Thank you for the compliment. The way I see it, we are all in this as one. But again, I don't recommend anyone drink alcohol with the meds were all on. But if you must, please, please, just drink a very small glass of what I recommended just about 2 hours before retiring. And whatever you do, please everyone, don't drink and drive with the meds. were all on plus ANY alcohol.
Hi Howlycat. I am so very sorry about your loss. I really hope I didn't bring back any bad memories. You are extremly right, no one should drink and drive. And you are also very correct that most people "hit the bottle" around holidays then drive. In fact, Christmas for a lot of people is an extremly stressful and depressive time of the month. I know I get depressed at Christmas.
I just thought that I would put in the "don't drink and drive" as a small reminder if any of us decide to have a small drink. A small glass of white wine with a sugar level of 2, VQA around bedtime will relax a person. It's still not a good idea with the meds. we are all on, however, it is a sweeter wine and you would be able to really taste the grapes that were used.
