Brief Answer:
No drug interaction with alcohol.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for your query.

Famciclovir has not documented evidence of drug interaction with consumption of alcohol.

So alcohol may not be contraindicated while taking Famciclovir.

You may take alcohol while on Famciclovir.

Any way for information that Famciclovir has interaction with disease conditions like renal dysfunction and liver disease where alcohol is also contraindicated.

Hope the answer helps you.
