    I have tooth ache at the moment and am going out for a social drink. I have read the leaflet included with the tablets and it does not mention alcohol. Is it ok to drink?

    Thanks

    Yes, it's fine

    Just don't recommend an overdose of either substance!

    It's not advisable, but it's never done me any harm! Sugary drinks will probably make the toothache worse though.

    if it was dangerous they'd put a warning on it because otherwise they'd be sued ALOT
    just take the recommended dose and stuff

    With 1g (ie 2 tablets, the recommended dose) of paracetamol, it's "safe".

    In overdose, alcohol would be an additional 'kick' to your poor liver

    My reply is dont drink on any known medication that could have effects.

    If your not 100% dont do it, stick to OJ for the evening.

    Asprin and alcohol isn't recommended as the irritation to the stomach is greater. Also, there's the whole blood thining/vasodilation thing, so worse if you get really wasted.

    No, it doesn't say on the packet that you shouldn't drink in conjunction with taking paracetamol...

    But if I knew you to have drunk alcohol within the past 8 hours, as a first aider, I would not be allowed to give you any, or my insurance would be invalidated. Make of that what you will.

    Can I just point out that as a first aider you are not allowed to administer drugs of any sort, unless the casualty provides them, and it's appropriate? (E.g. asprin or GTN spray)

    quite, first aiders can advise, but can't give.
    hence why school nurses these days are so pointless.
