Can i drink any alcohol at all ? For Christmas i got a box of chocolate that have brandy in them.Oh so good. I've had a few.Once in awhile i take 1/2 a sleeping pill.( Ambien) Sometimes i have trouble sleeping. Very restless or sore.Could i have a sip of brandy or some wine instead of a pill when needed.I will ask my drs when i see them next month, but i wanted opinions from some of you. Other questions i have asked everyone in the past have always been helpful. Thank You for your answers. Kathy
Here's what the interaction checker says re aggrenox and alcohol - GENERALLY AVOID: The concurrent use of aspirin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and ethanol may lead to gastrointestinal (GI) blood loss. The mechanism may be due to a combined local effect as well as inhibition of prostaglandins leading to decreased integrity of the GI lining.
aggrenox has aspirin in it.
