Question: Hi doc, i had my second dose of hepatitis b vaccine today. They person injecting the vaccing asked me not to eat nonveg or drink alcohol for 24 hours. After a few hours i forgot about it and after around 6 hours of the vaccinayion, had approximately half a peg of neat whiskey. Is this going to affect the impact of the vaccine in any way. Is there a need to worry?

No need to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome to health care magic,

Alcohol has no drug interaction with hepatitis B vaccine,it will not impact your vaccination.

So,there is no need to be worried if you mistakenly took whiskey after hepatitis b vaccine.

I currently take several medications for different health issues. Two of these are Lexapro and Wellbutrin. I was diagnosed with acute depression about 7 years ago and numerous medicines were tried individually. It was only when these two were prescribed in combination that the depression became noticeably less severe. However, after therapy for 5 years and a stay in a mental "hospital", I still do not have my life back. I was wondering if adding Celexa might be something I should discuss with my doctor? I used a Drug Interaction questionnaire which indicated there were no serious interactions with any of my medications, even if I included Celexa. Is Celexa actually an anti-depressant or is it similar to Abilify? Thank you! God Bless You and Your Family.

I have a bad cold with cough (for about a week now) and want to take coricidin II at night to get a good nights sleep. I checked for drug interactions as I am on meds for high blood pressure and 20 mg. of Prozac. There was a major caution due to possible serotonin syndrome - how great is the risk? I have been taking Prozac for more than 15 years and I titrate my dosage based on my mood over time. Right now I only need 20 mg. but in the winter it is usually 40 mg. Would taking Coricidin II at night for a couple of nights be too much of a risk? I believe it is called coricidin HBP in the US
