Will alcohol affect the effectiveness of drug Pacerone?

Does alcohol consumption change the effectiveness of the drug Pacerone? My husband takes 200mg of Pacerone twice daily and is a heavy drinker. He has developed frequent and violent muscle spasms. I think it is the alcohol and he is in denial. 2 years ago he suffered complete cardiac and respiratory arrest.

no major trial proved this till now. only once a trial was done for alcohol interaction out of that only 0.01 co relation was found which is insignificant. even then i advice you to refrain from alcohol as it affects cardivascular system in a major way during drinking binge.
