12. Medications for Nausea & Motion Sickness
Medications, such as Antivert, Phenergan and Dramamine, are commonly prescribed to tackle the symptoms of severe nausea. So, if you’re experience severe symptoms of motion sickness, your doctor or pharmacist is likely to prescribe a preventive dose of Dramamine or Antivert to eliminate the dizziness and nausea.
Phenergan is also regarded as an equally effective medicine to counter the symptoms of vomiting and nausea that tend to emerge after undergoing a surgery. A nauseous person is highly unlikely to want to chug down some alcohol, which is great because taking these medicines with alcohol can cause horrid symptoms of dizziness and sleepiness, along with raising your risk factors for overdosing.
13. High cholesterol Medications
High cholesterol patients are often prescribed medicines like Lipitor, which goes by the generic name of atorvastatin, along with Crestor, Niaspan, Pravigard, and Zocor amongst others. If you have been prescribed these medications, be sure to steer clear of alcoholic beverages. Mixing cholesterol control medications with alcohol can lead to severe liver damage.
And patients who consume Niaspan, known by the generic name of niacin, or Advicor that is known by the generic name of niacin extended-release and lovastatin, can also experience uncomfortable symptoms of flushing and itching.
14. Infection Medications
Infections are often treated by medicines such as Flagyl, Nydrazid, Seromycin, Zithromax, Grisactin, and Tindamax. Doctors strongly recommend patients to avoid taking alcohol with these medicines, and it is also important to avoid consuming booze after several days of consuming them. You see, if you consume any kind of alcohol or end up taking any food item that contains propylene glycol, a popular additive found in certain packaged foods such as salad dressings, frosting cake mixes, and ice creams, it can trigger severe symptoms, like stomach ache, flushing, headache, nausea and vomiting.
