young women drinking Palcohol. Powdered alcohol. Convenient for hikers, kayakers, anywhere where weight is an issue, but could the very convenience it brings increase risk of alcohol poisoning and under age drinking?

These appear to be the challenges that Lipsmark, the company that makes Palcohol and Mark Phillips, the company president are now facing.

In a recent interview, the president noted that he came up with the idea for use in hiking and wanting to enjoy an alcoholic beverage when the day is done. One of the Rum, Vodka, Cosmopolitan or Powderita packets apparently has as much alcohol as a typical drink. The prevalent video shows Mr. Phillips reconstituting a packet, then pouring a drink.

 

Concerns arose in the media and from legislators almost immediately. Colorado and several other states banned the product. Approval for the product apparently has been reversed.

This editor immediately had the caution reaction, noting that the recently released Essential Guide to Prescription Drugs, Update on Alcohol helps people understand how to drink safely and avoid interactions, but that the book didn't contain Palcohol data (except in the sense of a standard drink and being careful of intake).

 

The saga of Palcohol is not over, but is apprently being reviewed. There are several cases of prescription drugs where medguides (and perhaps the Essential Guide) could be used to teach people about the product and help avoid problems. Perhaps a limitation on sales (5 packets at a time to any single person) could help.

 

More to follow as always once new information becomes available.

    two women drinking Roughly 130 million people in the US drink alcoholic beverages and many of us take alcohol for granted. Recent data compiled from the CDC reveal that roughly 6 people die a day from aclohol poisoning. This sad and largely preventable death toll is related to the blood level of alcohol and also to potential drug interactions.

Surprisingly, alcohol is actually used for antifreeze poisoning, but is far more commonly used as an antianxiety/relaxation agent. So many of us know that after work cocktail or two and the effects of a drink and how it works--or do we? James Rybacki, the author of a new book on alcohol, entitles, The Essential Guide to Prescription Drugs, Update on alcohol (available from Amazon exclusively at present) was shocked to learn of the large daily number of deaths from such a common beverage. More importantly, when the new became available, he decided to update his prior publication (previously only available as a PDF) and launched a large awareness campaign to help people and thier children become more aware of risky drinking, binge drinking and important facts to help keep people safe.

While the eBook, The Essential Guide to Prescription Drugs, Update on Alcohol is currently only available from Amazon for Kindle, it will soom be available in the iBookstore and other outlets. Rybacki is quotes as saying, "the best colleague any clinician can have is a more fully informed patient and family." Very true words when it comes to alcohol.Find the book at Amazon and listed in Dr. Rybacki's vast publication list as the latest one at https://www.amazon.com/author/jamesrybacki.
