Brief Answer:
You will have more intensed side effects of hangover!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

Alcohol aggravates the symptoms of flagentyl. Please, if you have started taking flagentyl before, then go ahead and take it but be rest assured that may have sever side effects. This is still better than starting the treatment from scratch. Please, always avoid alcohol while on medications, please!!!

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.
