Can I consume the tablet Eszopiclone after drinking beer?

I want to go have a few beers, but am trying to get used to a cpap machine and the dr prescribed 2mg eszopiclone to help me sleep while adjusting to machine. How long should I wait (days or hours) after drinking beer to be able to take the above pill.

It takes about 2 hours for the body to metabolize alcohol, if you take one pint of common beer. However, for strong beer it may take 3-4 hours for the effects to wear off.Hence you can estimate approximately the time gap is needed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
