Brief Answer:
It is not safe

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX As per your age and drug intake (Risperndone which it self a central depressant), it is not safe to take so much of alcohol. It can cause central nervous system depression and can even cause respiratory depression leading to difficulty in breathing. If you are addicted for alcohol, kindly go for de-addiction programs.

So, are you saying that she shouldn't drink any alcohol? Not one drop? She had a beer (12 oz) last night with no adverse effects.
