Went out for a few drinks last night. I hade a few glasses of Monetenegro, 3 or 4 glasses of white wine and campari and some wine.

Being on an empty stomach, my head started to spin a little (yeah, I'm really weak on an empty stomah, plus I haven't had anything to drink in a while)

That's not the problem.

My friend convinced me to have a shot of whisky, which I haven't even managed to smell without my stomach turning since the first time I got extremely drunk on it 5 years ago.

The moment I had that shot, ym stomach turned, and suddenly my face was swollen and my nose was extremely blocked for a while. I couldn't stop sneezing, and I felt like utter crap.

After about an hour, it passed.

Is it possible that I have developed an allergy to whisky, even though I don't drink it?

The other possibility is that it was a reaction to the ton of antibiotics I've been on this past week, but I've never heard of a reaction like that, and I was fine before the whisky.

Has anyone else had any similar experiences?

It's not an allergy, it's just very strong alcohol. I've had that with Sambuca.

Plus, it said it was genetic, I pretty much come from from a family of alcoholics, both from my Mums and my Dads side.

And they said it should last two or three days, it went within an hour.

I really hope it's not that.

I say this.
Doesn't matter if other drinks don't have same effect, as not all drinks are equal [such as why a wine hangover is different ot vodka hangover, etc even if consumed same amount of alcohol volume].

It's very likely that it's that, it just seemed a weird alcohol antibiotics reaction to me.

Augmentin. I've been taking three a day instead of the standard two 'cause it was extreme dental pain. I finished them yesterday morning. In hindesight it was stupid to go out drinking, but I've had much more to drink on antibiotics than that and nothing has ever happened, let alone a weirdly blocked nose.

I'm not a medical doctor or anything, but isn't that exactly why most doctors tell you to not consume alcohol while you're taking antibiotics?

No, they tell you not to because medicine from a few decades ago would quite often react to alcohol. The majority of modern medicines will not react with alcohol. It's more a continuation of a piece of advice that is outdated.

There's an 'e' when you drink it as shot. Sippin' whisky comes without an 'e', and with flavour.

I don't know if you're just suggesting all good whisk(e)y comes from scotland (which I agree with) or not, but just in case I'm going to say that depending on where it's from it should have an 'e' in it or not. Scottish whisky is without the 'e', all other whiskey is with an 'e'.

So let me get this straight: You are on antibiotics and you drank that much last night?

How fucking stupid are you?

Edit: Read through the thread. You didn't even take them like the doctor told you to.

You are really fucking stupid. The doctors give you a schedule and tell you not to drink for a reason. You deserve whatever liver damage you caused yourself.

I did take them how the doctor told me to, and I finished yesterday.

TBH, there's no real reason not to drink whilst on augmentin; with the possible exception of getting so pissed that you miss a dose. It's not known to interact with alcohol, and at worst it might aggravate a side-effect that you suffered without alcohol.

Unless the doctor told you to take 3 a day, then just take 2 a day for the full regimen. There is a reason why these dosings are set. Also, Augmentin is just amoxicillin, it's not going help with dental pain. The purpose is to prevent infections, not help with your dental pain. It's an antibiotic.

I'm not that much of an idiot.
It was prescribed by the doctor. And he prescribed three a day.

I didn't decide "I have dental pain, I'll take antibitics"

The reason he gave them to me was because I had a a root infection.

FYI, augmentin is amoxycillin with clavulanic acid(as an augment, hence the name).

It's unlikely a reaction to the anti-biotics. Like 99% of anti-biotics nowadays don't react to alcohol, as someone who watches QI said above me.

It could just be coincidence? I went out one night, had one beer and couldn't stop throwing up after it. It wasn't the alcohol as my tolerance is fairly high. It was just something I'd eaten the day before or something.

my bad. it's still doesn't change it from being an antibiotic to a pain drug though.

Are you an MD or PharmD (or student of either)? (I'm guessing since you know the trade names).
