my 19 yo son consumed x2 advil caps with alcohol beer and vodka and orange over a period of 1.5 hours .According to him the amount of alcohol was not excessive enough to have rendered him so intoxicated.He has very little memory of being abusive and punched a person once on the side of his face. This behaviour is out of character for him. I would like to know if this combination of alcohol and NSAID may have contributed to this change in behaviour and how is this possible.

Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about what your son experienced. It would clear up pretty soon if not yet. It is not related to the advil and alcohol combination he took.

From the above information, mixing different brands of alcoholic liquor is never advisable at the same time. it is more important t take one and stick to it. Mixing if often related with intoxication for some reasons that would have otherwise been the case with a single brand. This is probably what transpired for hi to have risen to levels of intoxication with quantities that he think are generally acceptable for him.

In all, it is not related to advil. He should avoid mixing several different liquors at the same time. Also, he should keep is alcohol consumption at a minimum because of the consequences of alcoholism.

I hope this addresses your query fully. Thank you for using our services and feel free to ask for clarifications if need be. I wish you and your son well.
