Take a dose of Nyquill and have a couple of beers. Then go to be. You will feel better in the morning.

Beer makes you forget you are sick. numbens the pain.

Standard procedure at my place.

not that beer has that much alchohol but is it true that it lowers your immunity system?

If you are of legal age to consume said alcoholic beverage, what "they" say really means nothing. Grow some man tits and enjoy!

I wouldn't if on Antibiotics!!

Antibiotics are hard on the liver as is and Alcohol will double the chances of liver damage.

At least thats what doctors told me when iw as fighting an infection in both legs.

Of course having a beer isn't going to hurt you. Beer never hurt anyone. Beer is your friend. Frankly Beer is deeply hurt that you would make such an unwarranted accusation.

Now, go to the fridge and apologize!

In fact, apologize twice.

The way I look at it, if I'm getting a buzz from a few beers, those tiny little germs must be getting truly wasted.

And maybe just maybe they'll start getting into drunken brawls with each other thereby killing each other off!

+1, don't even think about drinking while taking antibiotics.

This reminds me of that guy who asked a while back if it was a good idea to drink beer while running on the treadmill. People who ask these things should probably just stay clear of beer, period.

As with all drugs, it depends on the particular drug and how the body eliminates it.

Some AB's are liver eliminated, just as some are metabolized through the kidneys.

Your doctor was speaking in VERY broad generalities.

However, alcohol can exacerbate side effects and lessen the potency of certain meds, so be careful.

Drink lots and lots of SCOTCH! This will take care of your pain, sickness, and make you sleep.

Just remember if you are still feeling bad it is because you havn't drank enough.

It depends on why you are sick. If it's a stomach ailment beer will likely make it worse. Almost anything else, you should be fine.

Drink a case and a half and quit slacking, there is a surplus of beer.
Link Posted: 2/11/2006 5:04:32 AM EDT
Instead of drinking beer why not just drink shots of Everclear. That will make you feel *MUCH* better.

Thanks!

I've been sick as a dog for a week with a sinus infection. This definitely helped. [burp]

Alcohol is just about a complete no-no if you are taking any other medications. Other than that, YMMV.
Link Posted: 2/11/2006 2:09:15 PM EDT
I've been drinking beer while sick for the past week, and I'm still alive. ymmv.

Seriously, that is why I love this place. I was wondering the very same thing, and like magic, somebody asks it.

If someone has a minor sinus/upper respiratory bacteriological infection, will the alcohol or yeast in beer significantly interfere with the immune system? Not taking any antibiotics.
