Would it be safe to drink beer after taking a steroid shot for a wasp sting?

I was stung several times by a wasp yesterday and they gave me a steroid shot which I am also allergic too but the doctor said because of my breathing he had no choice. He told me. the steroid would be in my system 3/4 days. I would like to have a few beers on Friday night and I was wondering if that would be ok? I don t drink very often...maybe 2 days a month but had plans on Friday. I know this may be a stupid question but have to ask.

Hi, I had a Steroid Spine Injection (my 2nd time in 2 months) at L5S1 for a compressed Nerve Root (Sciatic Nerve) My question is the injection was at 10am today & I want to know if having a few beers tonight (after dinner ~8pm) will affect the results? (I am not taking any medications today, nor do I plan to fill them until tomorrow morning, so if its because drowsiness, I should be fine *I think*, however, any advice on having a few drinks the night of a steroidal spinal injections would be very appreciated.
