why does it say on my benadryl pack 'as with all antihistimines, you should avoid excessive alcohol consumption when taking this medicine'
what happens if i drink wen taking it?
will i just get drunk more quickly?
I think it thins the blood therefore it takes less alcohol to have an affect on you.
alcohol changes how medications interact with the body. the alcohol mixed with the anti-h can have lots of side effects with relatively unknown mechanisms of actions. also, many antihistamines cause drowsiness, so when combined with the sedating effects of alcohol, feelings of drowsiness are magnified.
i think i can deal with that...
I take antihistamines at night time, so I don't be allergic in my sleep, but I don't take them if I'm drunk, not only because I forget, but because it makes getting up in the morning even harder because of the sedative effect they both have.
don't do it! i took some antihistamines one new year and then went out and got drunk- its the most drunk ive ever been in my leife and i wos sick for the whole day after-its the worst hangover ive ever had too! so yeh..duno why that happens but its not worth the risk.
edit: oops *life
its awesome! much cheaper night out. used to do it all the time during my first year at uni & know lots of other done the same.
No, tis bad for you!
Obviously, I never mix the two
