I am not a doctor- repeat- I am not a doctor
But I worked in a retail then a hospital pharmacy for 7 years and I’ve taken large doses of Ibuprophin for years for chronic back pain. A few reasons not to drink while taking pain meds (the reasons vary depending on the drug- ask your doc or pharmacist for detailed info)
- some pain killers mix very bad with alcohol- can cause serious respiration depression, dizziness, all kinds of bad things.
2- alcohol and Ibu in particular are a bad combo for your stomach. And also your liver. In fact, if you take a lot of Ibu or Tyl. you should get blood tests to make sure your liver is OK. Your stomach is a different story- mixing can cause gasteritis, nausa, and vomiting.
So, in short- don’t do both. If you are in doubt, your local pharmacist can be very helpful. They are the best people to tell you how long to wait before drinking after taking Ibu. (I usually wait around 3 hours, but that’s just me)
