It’s no secret that interfering alcohol with tablets, to put it mildly, is not the best idea.
According to the results of the study, 42% of people still periodically mix them. And most often, among the taken medications, there are those that are very dangerous to combine with alcohol in principle: pills from pressure, hypnotics, antidepressants, muscle relaxants and painkillers. Tramadol is an opiate analgesic that should not be mixed with alcohol.
All these types of tablets react with alcohol, which, in turn, can lead to unexpected (and unpleasant) consequences. For example, both painkillers and alcohol cause drowsiness and slow down the reaction time, seriously inhibiting the brain.
Together they give a literally deadly combo, which can simply turn it off – right up to a lethal outcome.
And this is the worst thing, but, alas, not the only warning. You must not allow the effect of alcohol and tablets to be summed up! If you take a pair of decongestants, narrowing the vessels, and supplement with strong alcohol, their effects will stack on each other, and the risk of internal bleeding will increase at times. Even some relatively “innocent” pills, for example, anti-cold pills that are easily sold in pharmacies, in combination with alcohol can lead to serious consequences like kidney, liver or stomach problems.
What to do if you need to take pills and ahead, for example, is a working corporate? In other words, how to minimize the damage if you still have to drink? It greatly depends on how much you are going to drink and at the time of the action of the pill. In order to digest without consequences, say, a glass of wine, your liver takes about an hour and a half. If you want to drink three glasses of red at dinner at ten PM and take a sleeping pill at twelve, you are at great risk: there is a big likelihood that the effect of not digested alcohol will be summed up with the effect of the tablets. And no, it does not mean that sleeping will be even stronger. Rather, on the contrary, people who mixed sleeping pills and painkillers with alcohol, suffered from exhausting restless dreams and nightmares.
The only right decision, in this case, will be to consult a doctor or pharmacist about the time for which the medicine is excreted from the body. Take Tramadol only after the end of this period. In addition, be sure to read the contraindications, as well as the principle of the drug. If you will see effects similar to the effects of alcohol – be extremely careful.
