Alcohol and Citramon
You should not think that only people who drink who cannot live a day without a sip of alcohol are thinking about the possibility of combining Citramon and alcohol. Situations in life are different.
For example, I drank a little in a noisy company, and then I got a headache. For non-drinkers, headaches after alcohol are common.
In this case, you need to know how long it will take to take the Citramon pill after alcohol in order to avoid unpleasant consequences.
This medicine was developed in the USSR in the 1950s, and already in 1960 it gained wide popularity. It was prescribed for colds and infectious diseases as an anti-inflammatory and antipyretic agent, used to relieve headache attacks.
The composition of the first drug contained:
- acetylsalicylic acid;
- citric acid.
A modern remedy consists of acetylsalicylic acid, paracetamol and caffeine, which enhances antipyretic and analgesic effects. Some manufacturers still add citric acid and cocoa, independently determining the required dose of these additional components.
Acetylsalicylic acid or - more often they say - aspirin - is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. It affects the centers of pain sensitivity and thermoregulation in the hypothalamus, as a result of which capillary permeability decreases, sensitivity to pain decreases, energy supply to the focus of inflammation is limited, blood thinns.
Paracetamol acts on the center of thermoregulation in the central nervous system, thereby lowering the temperature. It also reduces pain perception. Its main advantage is the absence of aggressive effects on the mucous membrane of the digestive organs.
Caffeine is an alkaloid. Its task is to stimulate the central nervous and cardiovascular systems, eliminate spasms of blood vessels, increase the outflow of urine, accelerate the heart rate, increase physical and mental activity.
Various manufacturers of modern Citramon are experimenting with the main ingredients, so I don’t read it for sure how to take this medicinein the instruction is impossible. Doses and duration of the course of taking a modern drug largely depend on the manufacturer.
Citramon from Darnitsa is not a medicine for children. It has increased the amount of caffeine, added citric acid and cocoa, as in a traditional remedy, its effect is most pronounced. You can take no more than 4-5 tablets per day.
Citramon Forte is a complex form of a combined drug. The amount of all components is doubled, no more than 3 tablets are taken per day.
Citramon from Borimed - the dose per day can be up to 8 tablets. They can remove mild pain, it has no anti-inflammatory effect.
There are several more popular drug modifications: Citramon-lect , Citramon-P and others. After purchasing a medicine - even if you have already taken an analogue - you should definitely ask about the composition and recommended dosage - carefully read the instructions.
Side effects of alcohol
A small amount of alcohol has a quick positive effect on the body. The vessels expand, the pulse accelerates, the cardiovascular system begins to work more actively. Stiffness in communication disappears, overloads of the nervous system are eliminated, vascular tone increases.
Small doses of alcohol do not affect everyone in the same way - some have pleasant languor, drowsiness - they drink a glass before going to bed specifically to avoid insomnia.
However, even the smallest doses of alcohol require neutralization - ethanol destroys liver and brain cells and has a toxic effect. Frequent consequences after excretion of alcohol are headache due to vasospasm.
The hand usually reaches for the pill, which has helped in many cases, but it is not recommended to immediately drink Citramon after alcohol. The consequences of admission can be quite serious.
Pain Relief Side Effects
Even healthy sober people have an individual intolerance to the components of the drug. If you drink Citramon after alcohol, the strength of the components will increase, and side effects from such a reception may occur even for those who have already used the medicine without negative consequences.
The following reactions occur most frequently.
- Pain in the digestive organs, vomiting, bowel disorders. Alcohol and acetylsalicylic acid, having a complex effect, corrode the gastric mucosa, irritate the nerve endings;
- Upper gastrointestinal tract bleeding may occur. Increased vascular fragility, cessation of actioncaffeine caused a violent spasm, and the action of acetylsalicylic acid thinned the blood. Platelet function is impaired, blood clotting is much lower than in a sober state;
- If a person who has drunk a dose of alcohol has minor disorders of the endocrine system, then against the background of a hangover syndrome, the drug will aggravate the condition. This will cause lethargy, dizziness - a disorder of consciousness, tremors of the extremities may appear. The ability to coordinate will be impaired;
- Alcohol is an active allergen, and the use of a drug does not go unnoticed by the body . He also needs neutralization and elimination. Simultaneous use with alcohol increases the risk of developing hemorrhagic diathesis and the most severe manifestation of allergy - anaphylactic shock.
Can I drink citramone with alcohol at the same time? If you are not afraid of allergic reactions, deterioration of the condition, the appearance of pronounced side effects, then - probably - you can.
The instructions for Citramon say about its compatibility with liquids containing ethyl alcohol categorically - it is not recommended to use it together.
Between alcohol and Citramon
The time taken to remove alcohol from the body depends on many factors:
- amount of drink;
- individual characteristics of a person;
- medical history;
- regularity of use;
- strength of the drink.
Women take longer to cleanse their bodies than men.
How long it takes the body to neutralize 100 ml of vodka is impossible to say for sure, but the approximate average values for healthy people:
- 0.10-0.15 ppm per hour for men;
- 0.85 - 0.1 - in women.
That is, in order to avoid an allergic reaction from the combined use of medicine and alcohol, it is necessary to withstand a period of at least 4-5 hours after the meal.
The half-life Citramon is from 1.5 to 2 hours. The body is completely cleansed in 4-5 hours - a temporary value, as with the use of alcohol, averaged.
People have individual reactions to drugs. It turns out that you can drink alcohol only after this time - 4-5 hours.
Do not combine the intake of a drug with acetylsalicylic acid and alcohol for erosive lesions of the gastrointestinal tract. The risk of an ulcerogenic effect - bleeding is too high.
The body does not cope with the elimination of ethanol and salicylates in the presence of diseases of the urinary system or in liver failure. In this case, severe intoxication appears, which is unlikely to be overcome without the help of an officialeditsiny.
Caffeine and alcohol are a killer combination for heart disease. Joint use can provoke a heart attack.
Medicines should not be combined with drinks that contain ethyl alcohol, especially Citramon. This pronounced analgesic increases the toxicity of alcohol and causes irreversible effects on the body.
