Most people who consume alcohol, whether in moderate or large quantities, also take
medications, at least occasionally. As a result, many people ingest alcohol while a medication is present in their body or vice versa.

A large number of medications—both those available only by prescription and those available over the counter (OTC)—have the potential to interact with alcohol.

Those interactions can alter the metabolism or activity of the medication and/or alcohol metabolism, resulting n potentially serious medical consequences. For example, the sedative effects of both alcohol and sedative medications can enhance each other (i.e., the effects are additive), thereby seriously impairing a person’s ability to drive or operate other types of machinery.
