Re: antacids and alcohol
One of the first things that they tell you in treating acid reflux is no alcohol and no fatty or spicy foods. I do not know about the alcohol absorption being increased by anti-acids.. I do know tha acid properties of alcholols can act as a stomach buffer acid and thus strength the concentration of your stomach acid.
The alcohol has never been a problem for me.. I am allergic to beer and don't have enough of the enzyme necessary to process it. It is looking like I passed that on to my child.. it is one allergy, I am proud of.. however some cough suppresants are rough. A child's dose of nyquil and wheee! I fly like a kite.
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
