Understanding the Impacts of Alcohol on Health and Medication: A Guide to Responsible Drinking



Teleconsultation – 2023-07-26 15:54

It is now the third time I try to contact you. I have a problem, yesterday I was in a pub and it seems I got intoxicated. How old am I? How many days to my next birthday? What medication do I have to take? Should I take any precaution? Can I talk to a physician?

Dear Mr. Thompson,

I apologize for any inconvenience you might have experienced while trying to reach us. I understand it can be frustrating, and I appreciate your patience.

Based on your date of birth, August 8, 1963, you are currently 58 years old, and there are approximately [number of days until August 8] days left to your next birthday. However, please remember that good health isn’t just about counting years, but also about maintaining a balanced lifestyle.

Regarding your medication, you are currently on Metformin 1000mg twice daily, Lisinopril 20mg once daily, and Aspirin 81mg once daily. Metformin is a medication used to control blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes, while Lisinopril helps in managing your hypertension, and Aspirin is used as preventive medication for your cardiovascular health. Please continue to take these medications as prescribed.

Now, about the incident at the pub, I must stress the importance of moderation when consuming alcohol, especially considering your medical history of hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Excessive drinking can cause a spike in blood pressure, affect blood sugar levels, and have adverse effects on your heart.

In case you are feeling unwell after the recent alcohol consumption, I would advise you to drink plenty of water, rest, and monitor any symptoms you might be experiencing. If you notice any severe symptoms such as severe headache, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, shortness of breath, or any other concerning symptoms, please seek immediate medical attention.

Due to your medical history and current medications, it would be advisable for you to have a discussion with Dr. Truppe or another healthcare professional about the impact of alcohol on your health and your medication effectiveness.

Remember, it’s always important to listen to your body and take care of it. Health is a journey, and every step in the right direction counts.

If you wish to speak with Dr. Truppe or need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our office at +43 1 4089500.

Take care and stay safe.

Best Regards,
