How soon after having an alcoholic drink is it safe to take some pain medication? I had two Bartles and James wine coolers about 30 minutes ago, and I've been battling extreme pain in my back that is not going away... I wanted to take an Aleve, but had the wine coolers first thinking that the pain would go away a little, but it just seems to be getting worse.. so does anyone know how long the alchohol will stay in my system and how soon is it safe to take the Aleve for my back pain?
