As a long-standing wine lover, can I still drink it when I am on a course of medication?
You are strongly advised not to mix alcohol and medication, for several reasons:
- Some drugs can lose their effectiveness when combined with alcohol.
- Most medicines are metabolised by the liver, like alcohol. So mixing them represents an additional burden for the liver.
- The combination of some medicines with alcohol can have serious consequences when driving (slower reactions, impaired assessment of dangers, recklessness, somnolence, confusion, loss of visual acuity, impaired coordination, etc.).
- Just like some aggressive drugs, alcohol irritates the gastric mucosa.
Vintense offers a risk-free alternative because it is a totally de-alcoholised wine. The same pleasure as wine without the drawbacks.
