    Is it a bad idea to log onto SDN drunk? This is totally dental-related since I am a pre-dental student. SO DONT DELETE.

    Anyhoo. Off to grab a multivitamin and 2.34 L of H20.

    See ya.

    Yea no offense dude but that is kind of weak...i mean i've come home drunk and checked facebook, my email, or even sent an obnixious voicemail or two. but I dont know if I'd ever come on SDN and make a "drunk post" :laugh: I mean I know i'm posting here at like 6:50 CST..but thats just b/c I have to be at work like...20 minutes ago. oops. anyway, this will probably get closed pretty quick.

    Question. Since many vits in multivitamins are water soluble rather than fat soluble, taking them with that much water may defeat the entire purpose of taking them...no? So in 45 minutes, you will have to pee and there goes the vitamin and your money right down the toilet. Now THAT is something I would ponder for hours if I were drunk.

    I may be remembering A&P wrong, but I think the path from gut to urinary tract involves a trip to the liver. :thumbup:

    No man, see, that's the beauty of his scheme. By drinking alcohol he essentially renders his liver functionless, allowing the multivitamin to pass straight through his system and out the 'front door'. So now we all think he's trying to be healthy when in reality he isn't.

    Come on Armorshell! ;) You know there is more to it than that. It is a matter of bioavailability and unfortunately, your average multivitamin states how much is in the tab, not how much is actually bioavailable. It has to make it through a major chunk of the digestive system before it moves to the liver and into the bloodstream. The chelated ones escort the vitamins to the bloodstream, but unfortunately, most that aren't pharmaceutical grade don't have this feature. INTERESTING... no? Vit A, D..hormone (fat soluble) can be stored, but B,C etc(water soluble) has to be replenished. There is evidence that you could actually be receiving 65% less due to bioavailability of the tablets (aka it passes right through without being absorbed and is excreted as waste). Liquid form allows for the vitamins/nutrients to be more easily absorbed. Learn something new every day. Don't I feel like a wealth of relatively useless knowledge.

    More interesting, despite this, I misspelled soluble in my previous post and just noticed it now.

    Roger that! This is true. You have to be very careful about which multivitamins you buy.

    Tooth85, sometimes I feel like my life is an alcoholic haze, but then I remember I have been in the library for 10 hours.

    O there's a point. Share your hangover remedies.

    To make it dental relevent....I give you this prompt:

    Sunday morning comes and you've got the DAT bright and early Monday morning. You've got just one more day to study but that hangover is like a knife in the head. What do you do? What's the physiology behind it?


    (i need your answers, lol, although Ive got no test, i just have to move and my head is killing me!)

    Drunk, hungover or not, good stuff to know. Time = only complete cure

    Oh no...I'm taking my DAT and I have dehydration due to inhibition of vasopressin production.
    Remedy: Drink water like OP. To prevent this you would have to drink something like 2:1 water:alcohol volume. .

    Vitamin A,B6,C depletion -- Remedy: see previous post

    Prostaglandin synthesis -- Remedy: Asprin

    Glutamine inhibition--Pharm grade supplement?

    Toxic acetaldehyde... Increase your cysteine levels? egg yolks...bleck!

    It is rec one drinks fruit juices high in C and B vit, water, 2 asprin, liquid or chelated multivit. esp B6 and food. No coffee, tea or soda for you!

    Next time I will have to eat some fatty foods (given this hypothetical situation) that will slow the rate the alcohol is absorbed at...on the other hand, it will take me longer to have fun, make an ass out of myself and lower my inhibitions... darn catch 22s. Now wish me good luck on my "DAT" (keeping it dental related)

    Doesn't caffiene increase vasodialaton thus increasing the efficacy of pain killers. My cure is tons of coffee/water/OJ and 600 mg of ibuprofen, a good breakfast and many episodes of simpsons and family guy on tivo. You can always go for the hair of the dog, but this is only acceptable on boats, golf courses or camping with your buddies.

    The best way to avoid is eating foods high in fat and carbs combined with copious amounts of water before bed.


    Happy Drinking
