Brief Answer: NO Detailed Answer: Hi friend, Welcome to Health Care Magic It is never wise or safe to take alcohol - it is not good at all, even for a normal person Irrespective of the medication, it is harmful, by itself It has several ill effects on several systems, including the heart (muscles, nerves and so on) The addicting potential too is high There is no scientifically approved indication to prescribe alcohol... There are many to proscribe (ban) its use Good luck Take care Wishing all well God bless
