    Unless it is a salad dressing, anything with alcohol usually has the booze cooked out. Things like red wine vinegar, cooking sherry, any wine in a recipe.

    if the vinegar is in a single portion of salad dressing, you would not have gotten enough to make a difference. I wouldn't worry about it anymore. But, do pay attention to lables.

      You are welcome. In a pasta sauce the wine when used is put in early. The alcohol would be cooked off. They would not take a chance of it not being, as children and seniors eat their food. You are fine, Honey. Very wise of you to check, Carlie.

    I have dual diagnosis of being an alcoholic with anxiety.  I've mixed so many pills with booze it's unbelievable.  That is without cooking!  When I quit drinking I'd use wine and beer to cook with many different things.   It gives your food a flavor but cooks out the effect of alcohol. I make shrimp with beer and chicken with red wine.  I did this for 11 years while I was sober.  

    Save your anxiety on this one.  I promise you there's no harm done smile

    Oh my gosh,I think you'll live. Please don't freak out. You will be fine. 2mg is a very sm dose. Does that help you, and are you on a antipressant besides. Curious.

    2mg diazapam to me personally has no effect whatsoever . I can't notice any difference whatsoever. 10mg makes me slightly less anxious, it depends on your tolerance level, the same as alcohol. When I had some serious dental work done, I wanted a GA, but the dentist explained I would have to have it done in hospital and the waiting time was at least 6 months.

    He prescribed 1 20mg diazapam tablet to be taken an hour before my appointment. However I was still worked up and ended up with a 10mg tablet as well. The dentist was amazed that after that amount it didn't really help much. People react differently . However I think it's safe to say 2mg diazapam with the ready meal will cause no problems. If you were taking Antabuse then that's a different scenario. Stop worrying!
