Hi !

Thank you for your query.

Well your daughter had a wrist fracture for which she has been advised pain killers and antacid .

Alcohol does not have much interactions with these drugs but a word of caution exists as taking excess alcohol along with pain killers increases the risk of irritation to your stomach lining and may lead to bleeding .

But this risk is much greater for people already having other comorbidities like deranged LFT or with gastritis .

You should tell her to take alcohol in moderation and not get drunk.

Wish you good health.

Take care.

Omeprazole is taken in 20 mg half an hour before breakfast , Dexibuprofen is generally available in 200 mg and 400 mg but in which dose it is prescribed depend upon depends on the treating doctor . Nolotil capsule is available in 500 mg generally .
