ALCOHOL AND H2-RECEPTOR ANTAGONISTS

Although some studies have found that blood alcohol levels can be slightly rais
possibly remain elevated for longer than usual in those taking H2-receptor antag
other studies report that no significant interaction occurs. Hypoglycaemia, whi
occur following alcohol intake, may be enhanced by H2-receptor antagonists.
Extensive reviews of the data have concluded that the interaction is not, in general, clinically significant. There are insufficient grounds to justify any general warning regarding alcohol and H2-receptor antagonists, but note that many of the conditions for which H2-receptor antagonists are used may be made worse by alcohol, so restriction of drinking may be needed.
