(HealthDay News) -- Scores of over-the-counter and prescription drugs interact poorly with alcohol, says the American Addiction Centers.

Side effects of mixing alcohol and certain drugs range from nausea to organ damage, the organization says.

Some drugs that do not mix with alcohol include:

  • Ibuprofen and acetaminophen.
  • Sudafed and other "cold and sinus" medications.
  • Cough syrup.

Check with a doctor about potential interactions between any drug and alcohol consumption, the organization advises.
