Answer

It states on the bottle that drinking alcoholic beverages is not recommended. It will affect the way the medication works.

Answer

You can drink on the medicine but extreme caution must be taken. Tolerance to alcohol greatly decrease while on Strattera. Unless drinking responsibly and in moderation, it is advised not to drink while on Strattera.

Alcohol may influence the absorption of anti-biotics in the system. I would wait about 3 hours before consuming alcohol. This is an urban myth,there is no evidence whatsoever of alcohol having any impact on anti biotics.

No... Beer is alcohol, and if you drink any type of alcohol while pregnant, you run the risk of your newborn having FAS.

Alcohol: While you drink alcohol your blood stream absorbs the alcohol and the nervous system functions slow down dramatically, this is a 'buzz' or numbness people often have after drinking.

When you drink alcohol it will be in your system after 2 hours and baby can get it while breastfeeding. Baby will have fetal alcohol disease syndrome.

Yes, you can get a ticket for having an open container of alcohol in you car while driving the state of California. You can get a ticket because it is illegal to have unsealed alcohol in your car.

I would consult your psychiatrist.

Strattera and Concerta for two and a half years, and has worked well after finding the right combination of doses.( Strattera takes about 3 days to build up in our system, while Concerta takes less than an hour) No serious side effects, got better about having no appetite after awhile. Also good liver enzymes (must have blood work done to see how your liver is). Extremely expensive, though. (he's nine,now)

No, it will cancel out the effect the antibiotic is having.

It is dangerous to drink alcohol whilst withdrawing from any drug, you would be flirting with dependance.

You should abstain from alcohol while treating tb or any other kind of infection. Because infections are cured with antibiotics and you can't drink while taking antibiotics.

I know focalin would not work because it has to stay in your system for a little while to see the good effects (side effects are usually present immediately). I have high metabolism and adderall IR and strattera didn't work for me either.

User Avatar

I have been reading around and read that some people take a small dose of adderall while on Strattera, but this is definitely something you need to ask a doctor.

You can drink alcohol AFTER the treatment.Avoid drinking 1 week before and 1 week after the treatment just to be sure that your body is absorbing the nuclear medicine and not the alcohol.

: You should not be experiencing these sorts of effects while taking Strattera. This is what is mentioned on the Black Box Warning for Strattera, including other changes in behavior such as irratibility and suicidal thoughts especially in children. But either way it is clear that you need to contact your doctor and you should dicontinue use of Strattera.

alcohol is a depressant, which means it slows the nervous system, this can cause drowsiness and slower reaction times

I have been on strattera for a while and the only side effects I have experienced are minor nausea and a few headaches. I previously tried concerta and methalyn and those had a lot more side effects- which is why i changed to nonstimulant. I am happy with strattera and it's minor side effects.

User Avatar

No. You wouldn't get enough alcohol in your system to be positive.

not a good idea, of course u CAN, but u shouldn't

It has little street value, if any. It is not an amphetamine, and while it has a "speedy" effect for some people, it has a lot of side effects when taken at higher levels. Strattera should not be abused.
