Can I take paracetamol after drinking?

I have had two, small, glasses of rose with dinner this evening, and I had a tiny bit of 'mickey finn' liqueur earlier (around 3pm).

I am now experiencing excruciating pain and I desperately want some pain relief, but obviously I don't want to die. Can I take a normal dose of paracetamol? This pain is horrendous.

I would too

Paracetamol should be ok. (I believe it's ibuprofen that should be avoided due to increased risk of bleeding?).

Best time to take paracetamol ime.

However, you haven't had enough to drink to be experiencing 'excruciating pain'. Are you normally sensitive to alcohol?

Yes of course.

But if you are in excruciating pain you might want something stronger.

Yes, I would. If I get drunk and wake up in the night (I'm a light sleeper) I take a couple and it helps ward off a hangover in the morning.

I'm not in pain because of the alcohol. I'm miscarrying sad

It's 72 hours in and clots and pains/contractions are like labour! I've had some now and it's taking the edge off. Hot water bottle and chocolate deployed.

Oh god I'm sorry OP sad

Trills Sun 21-Aug-16 21:16:07

Is there anyone else around who can get you something stronger?

FastWindow Sun 21-Aug-16 21:19:23

In the kindest possible way you might have mentioned that very important fact in your op.

Call 111, paracetamol isn't going to touch that kind of pain. Please look after yourself flowers

MrsMargeSimpson Sun 21-Aug-16 22:23:39

Sorry, I don't really want to talk about it at the moment.

The cramps have stopped now, thank you for the advice and worry.
