Hello mahesh;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
No you cannot and should not drink alcohol along with TB medicines.The simple reason is that the medicines of TB contained in Rcinex are hepatotoxic that they can cause disturbance of liver enzymes and alcohol is also a toxic thing for liver so the combined usage of both can cause severe damage to your liver.Also alcohol can reduce the efficacy of the medicines there by disturbing your treatment.
