Alcohol and chicken pox
Here we come to the most interesting point of this article about whether it is possible to consume spirits with the chicken pox.
Treatment of viral diseases in adults should consist of taking medications. This is because the disease in adults always occurs in severe form.
To combine antiviral drugs with alcoholic beverages is in any case impossible. The paradox is that in the instructions for use do not write.
They usually do not contain information on the compatibility of the drug with alcohol.
And you know why? Because no sane subjects will not dare to test the effects of alcohol + drug itself.
Alcohol in combination with medication may give a different result:

- the medication will alter the effects of alcohol.
In any case, the outcome will be disastrous. So the question: is it possible to combine the spirits with drugs, I always reply that it is impossible.

Simply put, acetaldehyde is a very dangerous poison ceases to be broken down further and remains in the body unchanged, poisoning him. Because of this, a person will have heightened the symptoms of a hangover:
In addition, caffeine, which is also part of preparations against chickenpox increases 2 times the penetration of ethanol in the brain.
It is especially dangerous to take alcoholic beverages before and after vaccination against varicella. During treatment should refrain from any alcoholic beverages, including alcoholic.
