Thank you for posting your query.

Until recently these, long term use of these drugs was considered safe, but a very recent study suggests that taking these drugs for more than 2 years continuously might increase the chances of hip fractures.

Please avoid alcohol. If you re in need of a medicine like this(Pantocid), the chances are that you are having a significant gastritis so in that case consuming alcohol will only worsen your gastritis.

taking pantocid after consuming alcohol does not cause any problem.

Hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you have no further queries.

Wishing you good health.
