Why would you think that's a good idea? Listen to your doctor next time, YDI.
I disagree #22. The medical profession is not always an exact science and sometimes in order to figure out what is wrong you have to go through some trial and error. That is why it is called a practice. However, I really don't see why OP did not follow the doctor's advice in this situation. OP just went full retard.
#3 said "tend to", meaning "usually", implying "but not always". This covers your objections. Medicine is not an exact science and doctors don't know everything, but unless you've got medical training, its best to listen to their advice unless there's a really important reason not to.
Why would you not listen to that? It's extremely dangerous. Too much alcohol with meds can cause you to OD. Just be glad you didn't do something worse and/or get arrested.. Oh, and YDI
It's funny how your name is "Just Say No".. Nobody forced you to mix your meds with alcohol. You made that dumb decision out of your own free will. Those warnings aren't jokes. You definitely did it to yourself.
Perhaps he was talked into drinking by friends? When I was recovering from mono my doctor said no alcohol for a month, because my liver was still damaged. However this happened right before New Years, and my friends managed to convince me to have a couple drinks with them during the countdown. Luckily my liver was resilient, but looking back it was a pretty dumb thing to do.
