Customer Question

I don't know where to start. I have a son (55) years old who lives with us (his mom & dad).
He drinks beer almost every day, not just a beer but one that is 10% alcohol. He is also on several medications and we are afraid he is going to go to sleep and not wake up. He recently was diagnosed with shingles and in addition to his regular meds he was put on Nocor for pain, Prednisone and adyclovir 800mg. Please help us as we are an older couple and don't know what to do. Thank you. Francis

If his liver function test are ok than he can take all pills , because alcohol effects liver and pills that you mentioned are also metabolized from liver so in case of poor liver function it can effect his conscious level .

Please leave positive feedback for me .
