Alcohol is taken regularly with pain killers, prescription, over the counter and street drugs without thinking twice about it. Do we really know the consequences, long term results or internal damage we could be causing to our bodies?

The addiction to alcohol, pain killers or street drugs can also lead to liver damage, kidney damage, hives, mental illnesses or even worse, child neglect, child abuse or spousal abuse. Not to mention the crime, theft and death and devastation drinking and driving accidents cause.

Lets remember that one alcoholic drink means:

  • 12 ounces beer
  • 5 ounces of wine

1 1/2 ounces of 80% proof, 1 ounce of 100% proof

Anti-depressants

Cymbalta – alcohol and drugs like Cymbalta affect similar chemicals in the brain

– concern is increasing effects of alcohol, possibly increasing depression or affecting motor skills

– healthcare professionals advise is you do drink, drink light to moderate amounts

* My thought – it is a fairly new drug and we are the guinea pigs so report your side effects and adverse reactions with drugs/alcohol/herbal/foods. I would consider liver or kidney damage. There are withdrawals symptoms with Cymbalta, libido and on and on.

**I am not a doctor or professional but I wouldn’t combine them or take either if you have a history of depression, suicidal thoughts or any kind of mental illness. Get some help, it will get better.

*** Here is it, though I would include it too. Warnings are for anyone with biopolar, suicidal attempts, heart disease, diabetes, seizures, epilepsy, glaucoma, liver, kidney, bladder or allergies.
