Zantac and Alcohol Don't Mix

Vital Information:

  • Researchers report that subjects who took a common antacid and consumed alcohol in a simulated social drinking situation had a 38% higher blood alcohol level than would be expected from drinking.
  • The researchers note those who take this antacid and drink moderately should know they are impaired more than they may realize and should not drive.
  • Observers note moderate drinkers probably should not be driving anyway. Also, newer antacid options mean fewer patients take the antacid that was used in the study.
