Is this true?The reason?”Cephalosporin wine” can indeed cause disulfide like reaction, harmful to life and health.If you eat cephalosporin containing “methiotetrazole side chain” after drinking, the acetaldehyde produced by the wine can not be oxidized to acetic acid and accumulate in the body.Generally half an hour or so (early about 5 minutes, slow words 1 hour), light cases of facial or systemic skin flushing, dizziness, headache, palpitation, nausea, vomiting, fever and other symptoms, serious cases may appear chest pain, dyspnea, shock and even consciousness disorder, incontinence, etc., life-threatening.This is often said to be “cephalosporin wine” caused by disulfide – like reaction.In addition to cephalosporins, drinking alcohol can also kill you!In addition to cephalosporin, there are several major classes of drugs that are particularly lethal to alcohol and that can lead to a series of life-threatening disulfide reactions if you consume alcohol. These include blood pressure medications, blood sugar medications!Acetaminophen tablets acetaminophen tablets are used in most cold medicines to reduce fever and are commonly used to relieve mild to moderate pain, such as joint pain and migraines.Studies have shown that alcohol consumption may increase the hepatotoxicity of acetaminophen.02 Antihypertensive drugs Excessive drinking can dilate blood vessels, inhibit sympathetic nerve and vascular movement center, and weaken myocardial contractility.If you take blood pressure lowering drugs after drinking, small blood vessels will be more dilated, blood volume will further reduce, blood pressure plummet, prone to postural hypotension or syncope.There are pharmacokinetic and certain pharmacodynamic interactions between aspirin and ethanol.Alcohol intake at any concentration can increase irritation to the digestive tract, cause gastric mucosal lesions or recurrence of ulcers, and increase the risk of upper gastrointestinal bleeding associated with aspirin.04 sedative hypnotic sedative hypnotic drugs and ethanol combined with the degree of inhibition of the central and the type of drugs, drugs, alcohol, performance for drowsiness aggravation, reduced response sensitivity, distraction, poor coordination, serious and even can lead to death.Antiepileptic ethanol may affect the metabolism of some antiepileptic drugs, thereby affecting their efficacy.In addition, alcohol consumption itself may cause seizures.Therefore, alcohol is not suitable for epileptic patients.Alcohol consumption during sulfonylureas may result in severe hypoglycemia or irreversible neurological changes.Ethanol lowers blood sugar by blocking the conversion of glycerol, lactic acid and certain amino acids into sugars, and can also cause a “disulfide like reaction.”In summary, ethanol can alter the response of many drugs, and heavy alcohol consumption can affect the bioconversion of many drugs.Read the instructions carefully and inform your doctor of your recent drinking history.Alcohol should be avoided during the use of these drugs to avoid causing serious adverse reactions.If you experience severe discomfort after drinking, seek immediate medical attention.You know, taking medicine without drinking, drinking without taking medicine is the safest.Safe use of drugs, but also pay attention to prescription drugs, please strictly follow the doctor’s advice to use correctly!The boundary between drugs and drugs is sometimes only one step away.
