Brief Answer:
Yes, you can but very little!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Yes you can but keep the intake to a basic minimum. I generally discourage alcohol while on medications but may exceptionally allow it when clients really feel like and it poses no major threat or interaction.

I wish you well. Keep me posted with your progress.
