She is taking Loratabs due to a recent back surgery ( 10 days ago) with ambien, xanax, cymbalta, and lisinopril. Now she wants to drink alcohol. She is 76 years old. I think this would be seriously dangerous but she insists. I told her I would not buy her any. But she will find away. Would all alcohol be bad or maybe beer or wine. I think the reason she hurt her back was falling at night. What do you do with a stubborn 76 year old.
She is on 4 medications that effect her central nervous system. Drinking on top of them could cause major respiratory problems, not to mention falling and hurting herself all over again. I would contact everyone she sees or calls and tell them not to bring her any. Explain that you're not being mean its for her safety. I would also tell her if she wants the pain pills she will give up the booze. Does she live alone? Are you her responsibel party? If not I would bring those concerns to the one who is and let them handle it.
she is on some pretty strong stuff !and drinking with all these meds will likely cause her to have trouble breathing ,not to mention she just had back surgery if she drinks on top of this she's just asking to fall and maybe damage her back!!does she have a problem with alcohol ? either way she needs help!!please strongly advise her against drinking !i know you can't make her not drink but i hope since you care that ,she will listen to you!!
