Alcohol

Ok, I know youll probably say "are you trying to kill yourself"... haha Im not talking when your flaring but when you feel better, what type of alcoholic drinks can you mostly tolerate without a problem or too much or a problem?

Mixers. I can usually tolerate anything but beer. I typically drink Lady Bligh Rum, Irish Mist, Limoncello, Ancient Age Bourbon, Meade, or Irish Whiskey. I'll also go with flavored vodka. The latest was an awesome vodka called Pinnacle Strawberry-Kiwi flavored Vodka. Awesome in sprite and also poured over watermelon chunks!

I go for wine and tequilla primarily, not together of course. Rum and vodka go ok as well. Basically if I drink in moderation it doesn't really have a noticeable effect on me.

Got a little bit left. Now if I can just figure out how to pour it through my PC to get it to you...hrmmm. If I go offline for a while, you know why....

I have a feeling if you could figure out how to do anything through your PC like that, you wouldn't stick to just pouring and offering drinks.

BUT .. I've got an empty glass sitting right here just in case. It sound so yummy!

Nevermind. My tech friend said he didn't want to fix my computer yet again, after he recently did it. But at least you know the name of it. It's a 70 proof and tastes crazy good.

Red wine is good for me. I can handle a beer or two, no more than that. Haven't really tried anything else. Use to like to drink screwdrivers, voka and cranberry, and Jagermeister. Haven't had them lately though just mixed drinks at restaurants...always go with something with rum or vodka in it, something fruity.

Yeah, I tried drinking one of those, but the screwdriver got caught in my throat and once I finally got it down it played havoc trying to come out the other end.

Up until this past weekend, red wine was my absolute vice. Love it! Love it! Love it! But last Friday...OMG! It probably had something to do with the quantity , but Saturday was a day I never want to experience again! I still don't think I've properly recovered. Ugh.

Since I stopped tolerating beer a couple of years ago, I'll be on the wagon for a while...plus I'm back on the flagyl...

That brings me to another point. Has anyone ever had any alcohol while on flagyl? I have heard that the absolutely no alcohol thing is a myth. I am not willing to sacrifice my gut to find out, but I was just curious.

When i'm not flaring, wine is my vice! I love love love wine. Nothing better than a chilled bottle of wine, a takeaway and a dvd for a lazy night in.

I have been known to have a little tipple when i'm flaring, but I had vodka and coke and I was ok. On another occasion I had a couplle of glasses of wine and I was terrible afterwards. I haven't done that again.

Rum+coke is good for me. I like to take a little swig of rum and chase with the coke, that way I drink way less coke overall

I found I was okay with beer as long as I limited it to 2 pints in one night and then didn't drink again for a week or so. Although, if I drank less than that per night but drank multiple nights in a row I would have a lot of problems.

I recently decided that its just not worth it to me if it is potentially doing long term damage, no matter how minor. It wasn't too tough a decision though since I've never really been a heavy drinker.

I'd really like to still be able to enjoy some red wine once in a while, and I have been meaning to do some tests to find out if it is okay or not. I haven't gotten around to testing yet, so I'm not drinking at all right now.

Don't do it. It has an antabuse effect, not something you want to do.

Shadycat I was told that NO alcohol when you are on flagyl it will cause vomiting and it is not good. I don't think it is a myth. My sister tried it and she was so sick..

I've found that i can't drink beer really at all anymore.. one maybe two at the most. I never had a problem before I was diagnosed. Also, no coolers for me..the sugar is the killer. I have found that vodka or rum are ok. I can't mix them with pop. I don't drink very often but when i do i just mix water and vodka and sometimes a bit of crystal light mix. I have never had a problem with vodka and water. Wine is sometimes ok..but only in small amounts. Hope that helps a bit.. but it is different for everyone. I have found that most people I know with Crohn's have a problem with beer though so I would caution to be careful with beer and also dark liquors.

There's something about beer that I have never been able to do. Malt liquors make me sooooo tired.

I am so missing wine. Does anyone drink while on pred (and pentasa). My doctor said no but I am so tempted over Christmas. Will someone please tell me a small glass will be OK.

But then I so want to get well - maybe it is not worth the risk.

I only drink on occasion though.
