Drug and Alcohol Interactions - Have things changed?

How important is the interaction between drugs and alcohol? This US News and World Report article says that alchohol consumption is going down, "Americans Drinking Less Alcohol - Beer consumption is down, while wine consumption is up, study finds." If this is true, you'd think that fewer people would be exposing themselves to drug and alcohol interactions. . . .

Bottomline, "Americans are drinking less alcohol, with middle-aged people consuming about one-third less than 50 years ago, researchers report."

Alcohol can interact with many prescription drugs and cause undesirable adverse effects. It's important to monitor how your medications and alcohol interact.
