Normally I’d be looking forward to opening a bottle of wine tonight and relaxing a little. However I’m on a course of strong antibiotics for a tooth infection and I’m under strict rules not to drink.
I work with doctors all day and when one of them asked how my tooth was on Monday, as I returned from a dentist visit, I showed her the antibiotics I had been prescribed. “Don’t drink” she said immediately. I gave her that look we all give doctors when they tell us not to do something we surely intend to keep doing. “No! I’m serious! You cannot drink with those”
She then went on to explain that the antibiotic has a double use. It’s also used as a drug to supress alchohol intake for people with an alcohol misuse issue. Apparently even a whiff of wine will have me feeling awful (more awful than having had a toothache for a month!). She said you will be, and she’s a Consultant so this must be a technical term, “sick as a dog”.
So long story short, no boozed up weekend ahead for me. Let’s hope it at least stops the tooth pain!
