When taking medications, we need to be on the scout for “potentiation”. This means that when two or more medications are combined, it can have some dangerous consequences. This can actually cause you to be an impaired driver, experience pretty severe mood reactions, memory loss, and similar consequences. Best, therefor, to listen very carefully to our physicians and pharmacists, pay heed to all of the labels and warnings, and otherwise be safe. And combining alcohol with certain medications can really cause problems—so for your sake and Other’s, give this careful consideration. This is Alan Algee with Mental Health Minute at Dirigo Counseling Clinic wishing
you a safe and wholesome summer.
