Stay Alert for Patients Talking About Drinking Alcohol While on Meds
The approaching holiday season will have patients asking whether they can drink alcohol while taking their medications.
The answer depends on the med.
For instance, patients should avoid drinking any amount of alcohol while on ORAL metronidazole (Flagyl) or tinidazole (Tindamax). The combo can lead to a bad reaction with severe nausea and vomiting.
