Combunox and Alcohol speaks to what is Combunox, Combunox alcohol interaction and Combunox side effects.
Combunox generic names ibuprofen and oxycodone is a combination of both drugs and belong to a family of nonsteroidal antinflammatory drugs known as narcotic pain relievers. Ibuprofen reduces hormones that cause inflammation and pain. Combunox is used to treat moderate to severe pain and may be used for purposes other than listed here.
It is suggested that you not consume alcohol while the using the drug as the chance of stomach bleeding is greatly increased.
At this time the medical community defines moderate consumption of alcohol as no more than two drinks per day and no more than 14 drinks per week. Anything more than that is considered an unhealthy dependency on alcohol that may have adverse social, family and health consequences.
If a person drinks only once or twice a week but drinks on the same days each week and more than two drinks this is considered as an alcohol dependency.
If a person binge drinks at any time during the week this is also considered as alcoholism.
Some consider alcoholism as a disease while others consider it an addiction which is the result of personal choice and character fault. This school of thought blames the alcoholism on life style choices.
Personally I consider alcoholism a genetic tendency as I have seen families of alcoholics even when they live far apart. These unfortunate people are probably dependent on alcohol from the first drink.
