Hello I'm Dr Chip
I'm reviewing your question and will be with you in just a moment

It should be safe to have a drink or two now but that may get you a little drowsy so I suggest no driving after the drinking

Please let me know if you need any more information

I was just worried about adverse side effects. I was reading online that it could be a very dangerous combination to drink while taking them. Like I said I took a 25mg 5 hours ago. How long does a dose like that stay in your system?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Still there?

That really should be mostly out of your system by now

No major interactions except for the possible drowsiness

Also I am going to plan on trying to stop drinking tomorrow. When would it be safe to take the next dose of Chlordiazepoxide after drinking today. I only planning on having a couple drinks

You can take the chordiazepoxide starting tomorrow--you shouldn't take any more today after you drink

One more thing. Does it make any difference that I was drinking heavily over the last 6 days

No, that wouldn't change my suggestions

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
