How long should you wait before drinking alcohol after gallbladder surgery?
I had my gallbladder removed a month ago. They told me before I left the hospital not to drink for 24 hours - ha! Like I felt like drinking! However, your body may take longer to tolerate it. I tried last week to drink a glass of wine. After a few sips, I had a buzz and was not feeling very well. A couple nights later while spending the evening with a few friends, I had 2 glasses of wine. The next day I had the worst hangover of my life ( I am not prone to hangovers and while I don't drink heavily, it takes more than 2 glasses of wine to give me one). I was very sick to my stomach for the rest of the next day. So my advice would be to wait until you are recovered from surgery (and off any prescription pain medications) and take it slowly, to see what your body can handle. I did a little research to find out if it's normal to have problems drinking alcohol after this surgery, and it seems to be a lot of people who have trouble. Well, at least it wasn't the flu like I thought!

Thanks for the feedback!
You should wait for 3 - 4 days or until your dentist checks you again (whichever comes first.) Having any tooth pulled (wisdom teeth are difficult at best) tears the gums and …your dentist has probably packed the gum down by the bone and stitched each one. If you are on pain killers DON'T DRINK! Alcohol will make you bleed more. If you don't have much pain and you aren't on pain killers then 2 days after the pullings your dentists may say it is okay to drink alcohol. Give the gums a little time to heal.
A person has to wait atleast 24 hours after donating blood. I am saying this out of my own experience; I had a beer after i donated blood , and it was i believe 4 hours after …the bood donation. I wasn't able to see any thing, it will weeken your eye sight. The worst part is that it will raise your blood pressure to extreme level. the worst thing to do after donating blood is consuming liqure...
Mixing alcohol with opiates can make you sick and can even be fatal, so wait at least 4-6 hrs before drinking to be on the safe side.
The manufacturer of Zithromax recommends alcohol should not be consumed for at least 8 hours after taking the drug. Mixing alcohol with the drug could have serious side ef…fects.
It all Depends on what kind of alcohol you drink and what kind of antibiotics you take.If your liver is generally healthy, you can begin drinking alcohol right after you stop.….just be sure to be taking some sort of probiotic while you are on antibiotics or right after. Culterelle is a great choice! Alcohol may influence the absorption of anti-biotics in the system. I would wait about 3 hours before consuming alcohol. The antibiotic metronidazole can interact with alcohol to cause violent nausea and vomiting. Avoid alcohol for a couple of days after finishing a round of this medication, also known as Flagyl.
Depending on how many you took. If it was 1 or 2 regular strength, just wait a few hours (4-5) and a drink or two will be fine. If you're planning to go on an alcohol bi…nge though, then you should wait a lot longer, 12 hours at the very least as you could damage your liver irreparably and that is one important piece of meat you don't want to lose. If you took a sizeable amount of tylenol, then you should also wait a couple of hours before you drink alcohol, unless you think it's worth the risk of screwing up one of your top 5 most important organs. Besides, it's not even that good of a buzz, mixing the two.
4 to 6 hours after
wait until you are no longer on medication.
I would say 3-7 days depending on what it is. If its wine 3 or 4 should be fine but if its like hard liquor, 5 to 7 days just to be safe. If you do it same day it might rip or… disolve stiches early. But, just to be sure contact the person who performed the surgery or your primary dentist.
should be good to go after you are done your antibiotics, phone your doctor and ask him
4 to 6 hours. Basically how long it takes until the liver dissolves the percs
I spoke to my pharmacist and she advised my to wait 4 days. It is probably a good idea to just wait one week.
The rule of thumb is one hour for every drink. That is about how long it takes your body to metabolize the alcohol. A "drink" is one shot, one 4-oz glass of wine, or one 12-oz… beer. If you have been drinking strong mixed drinks, it may take much longer.
like 20 min
As soon as you can. Gall bladder infections, or gall stones are not a laughing matter - both can make you feel quite ill. Gall stones can be effectively controlled via a low f…at diet (but this does require dedication - i.e no butter, chocolate or cheese ever again). Gall bladder removal (which may not be necessary) is done via keyhole surgery these days - it's very safe and leaves a tiny scar.
Per walgreens pharmacy, You can drink alcohol while using monistat inserts. Just drink in moderation. No more than 1 or 2.
