I have had far too many of these, but the one that continues to make me cringe is this one. I had just had root canal surgery on two very badly abscessed teeth. The doctor gave me a prescription of Metronidazole to combat any remaining infection. Anyway, that evening my ex girlfriend had asked me to go and meet her parents for the first time. Now these situations make me nervous, so I'd had a bottle of wine by the time I arrived at their house (GF driving of course). At first I felt fine, relaxed with my dutch courage, (I had taken two tablets of the above half an hour earlier). The father, kind of a stern guy, proceeded to pour me another very large glass of wine which I gratefully accepted - as I did the next two. Then as we sat for dinner the room started to spin for me. I thought this is odd I haven't had that much. Then the worst happened - I was uncontrollably sick all over their dining table (food and all) and proceed to pass out falling off my chair and smashing a family heirloom in the process. I was on the floor semi paralysed the room was spinning very quickly. Now GF's parents are going ballistic. Her father had to drag me upstairs (I am quite a big bloke) put me on a bed with bucket beside me. Anyway to cut it short this was about the worst impression I think anyone could ever have made. And the reason: Metronidazole acts the same way to Antabuse when it reacts with Alcohol I met them after and explained - but Let's say I was as welcome as a bad case of the flue. If only I'd have read the bottle Any one else want to share?
