Hello
I would give it at least 5 or 6 days if you are worried about any drug interactions.
The half life is 20 hours, approximately.
In fact you are probably pretty safe after 3 half lives or 60 hours, but to be sure, 120 hours.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I am not worried about interaction with other medication as I don't usually take even parcetemol. My usual intake is lecithin capsules and omega 369 as well as one coq10 per day. I left out the coq10 for a few days. On 6th may I took mobic15mg and emazole 2mg(tummy protector). On 7th may I took mobic 15 mg, emazole 20 mg and 3 prednisolone 5mg. I had some wine on 6th may also. I am just wondering when it's safe to drink wine again
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
Certainly by tomorrow there would be no interaction.
I suggest if you are that concerned about being able to drink wine, and how soon you can get back to that, that this might be a problem.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Not a problem but I am just overly conscientious about things like this. I suffer from ocd
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
Ah I see.
I suggest , as in my offer, that no level of alcohol is safe for you.
Good luck.
See my offer.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Me or the general population
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
Both.
Safe level of alcohol for women....zero.
Alcohol in OCD...not advisable.
All of this is a different question: see my offer or find me on a new post by request, in medical.
