  • Answer: Oxycodone and ambien have no effect on alcohol concentration. They do have an effect on physical impairment. In most (if not all) states, a blood test may be administered to detect the level of the substance for purposes of determining both authorized consumption and level of impairment. A person with a medically authorized prescription for oxycodone or ambien may still be charged and convicted of DUI/DWI.
  • Answer: Alcohol absorption rates differ from one person to the next. A study by the University of Manchester shows that the use of carbonated mixer increased the rates of absorption in a majority of test subjects, the mean absorption rate was measured at 4.39 ± 0.45 (mg/100 ml/min), when mixed with a still mixer the rate was 1.08 + 0.36, the difference being a significant (p = 0.006)

  • Answer: "Yes! Alcohol depletes your DHA, fish oil gives it back. If anything, if you drink alcohol, you SHOULD take fish oil!"



    No, not a good idea. They both act as blood thinners and use the liver for metabolism via the cytochrome P450 pathway. This can potentially increase the load on your liver. Although random studies have shown fish oil to lower cholesterol and triglycerides, the possibility of nulling the benefits of fish oil could increase with alcohol consumption and increase overall liver enzymes, a primary indicator of liver injury. Here is an animal study on the effects of ethanol and fish oil combined. although a rat study, it should give a pretty clear indicator of the risks involved:


    Rats were fed ethanol in combination with fish oil or a corn diet in order to evaluate the effect of fish oil feeding on liver injury, microsomal ethanol oxidation, and NADPH-dependent lipid peroxidation. The rats were maintained on the dietary regimen for 72 days, and for comparison, pair-fed controls were studied. The liver pathology score progressively worsened in rats fed alcohol, both in combination with fish oil and corn oil, but the severity of inflammation and focal fibrosis was greater in the ethanol fish oil fed rats as compared with the ethanol corn oil group, whereas the fatty change was greater in the ethanol corn oil fed rats. The alcohol treatment caused a 2-fold increase of the liver microsomal P450 content, and about a similar increase in the rate of microsomal NADPH oxidation. The amount of ethanol-inducible CYP2E1 was about 10-fold higher in alcohol-fed rats as compared with pair-fed controls. The NADPH-dependent lipid peroxidation in liver microsomes was about 10-fold higher in microsomes from alcohol-treated rats fed corn oil as compared with controls, but only 2- to 3-fold higher in alcohol-fed rats receiving fish oil than in pair-fed controls. This was due to a higher rate of NADPH-dependent lipid peroxidation in the control rats receiving fish oil. There was a pronounced correlation between the amount of CYP2E1 and the microsomal NADPH peroxidation in variously treated rats, and between the 2E1 levels and the pathology score. The data suggest that fish oil diet, like corn oil, supports ethanol-induced liver injury which is related to CYP2E1 induction and the presence of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the diet (i.e., either n-6 or n-3).


What are the effects of taking anti anxiety meds and alcohol together?

  • This is a good question to ask your local pharmacist who is usually happy to answer such questions. What I know is that both anti-anxiety medications and alcohol can h lead to depression symptoms and since anxiety is often the flip-side of depression it does not make a lot of sense to drink while taking this medication. That actually can be said for most medications, alcohol can interfere with the effectiveness of medications ie. anti-depressants. It is also possible that drinking, because its immediate effect is, for some people ,to act like a mood elevator( a blocker of awareness to negative emotions) can escalate to a at risk level when a person is anxioius. The person finds the immediate pay-offs pleasant, does not care about the long range effects, and can substitute good self-care and medical follow-up, with self-medicating with alcohol and drugs. A small amount of alcohol ,as a beverage I think (ask pharmacist) is unlikely to be a problem, even a de-stressor. The Addiction Research Foundation in Canada has safe drinking guidelines which i think are about 1-2 drinks about three times per week. I hope you are feeling better.

  • Answer: Probably not; while being used as an antidepressant in individuals with depression or bipolar disorder, those not having a mood disorder would see little effect on mood. It would be more likely that the person would instead experience heart palpitations than any effect of euphoria.
  • Answer: I imagine you are taking this tinnitus or "ringing of the ears, noises in my head", etc..
    I myself are a fellow sufferer and so is a large percentage of the general population.
    Tinnitus is affliction that affects anyone. You do not have to have a hearing loss to have it. It can be a very upsetting experience and can cause quite a stressfull time for any individual.
    First of all medically, we understand very little about this problem. One must be very carefull not to do self diagnosis and self treatment. This can be very dangerous as well as can be very expensive.
    First, you should see a medical health care practioner, the medical practioner can determine if there is a known cause "organic" such as too much aspirin or side effect of certain medication or other complicating health reasons. This is rare in most cases it cannot be determined the cause and if that is the case there is nothing medically that cannot be done for it other than self mangemenet. We are only learning about it and there seems to be a strong link between tininnitus and stress. We know that relaxing, excercise and rest usually more manageable. Yoga, good diet and sleeping habits are great steps. You can try all sorts of medications, treatments, supplements and therapys. There is no proven treatment for tinnitus at this time.
    We have found that there may be some comfort for some people using lipo-flavanoid or better known as flava based products. As with any supplement, medications or drug using common sense, moderation and education is extremely important. Allways read the warning labels and check before mixing with your other medications.Side effects of flava can be damage to your liver for example and is not to be used long term.
    Anyone looking on the internet will see there are millions of sites offereing treatment for tinnitus from all sorts of individuals including well meaning doctors, nutritionist, audiologists, hearing groups, etc.. You may be suprise how few of them are actually have the condition but they offer you help for money. There is no cure. If you are still determine to the allways make sure you can get your money back should it not work that is a good indicator of their product. Allways check with your health care provider first.
