- Travel advice threads always turn into 'I'm a more off-the-beaten-track traveller than you' arguments.

- St George wasn't English

- St Patrick wasn't Irish

- The Matrix wasn't an original idea

- Xeno will take the p155 out of anyone - even/especially if they are handicapped and in a wheelchair and talk like a robot

Lots of posters including Charles Foster Kane don't know that according to the medical literature the only antibiotic commonly prescribed in this country that you shouldn't drink alcohol with is, is metronidazole. This is because it makes you throw up.

CFK is going to do a PhD.

She was good, I was better...

Oh, you mean the contract stuff? Oops.

Erm, went well, but I have decided I soooo need a break. The project sounds like a nightmare and I'm a good, but not great fit, so there is a good chance I won't even have to worry about whether to turn it down.

Like I said before, I applied for a handful last week and then decided I was getting burnt out so have stopped all searching for now. 2 weeks left here - then break - then we'll see.

Thanks for asking.

I refer the honourable gentleman to the bit about antibiotics... (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/health/article3774523.ece)

Yes.

This is from one of the drug manufacturers

Metronidazole
http://www.merck.com/mmpe/lexicomp/metronidazole.html
"Ethanol/Nutrition/Herb Interactions

Ethanol: The manufacturer recommends to avoid all ethanol or any ethanol-containing drugs (may cause disulfiram-like reaction characterized by flushing, headache, nausea, vomiting, sweating or tachycardia). "


If you search for other antibiotics like amoxicillin and ampicillin you won't find this information. (I can't think of any more commonly prescribed antibiotics.)

No chance. CFK can at least converse in English and display some level of rational thought.

I refer the honourable gentleman to the comment:

"Perhaps the respectable medical doctor has never heard of the disulfuram reaction, from which I almost died some years ago, because I had not been informed of the side-effects of mixing alkohol and 3rd generation cephalosporins - any medical book of pharmacology gives detailed information about it."

I wouldn't quote the Times as a definitive guide to medical practice. Most doctors are behind the times.
