Sorry to hear that you are having problems. Many people and physicians have spoken about drinking with the medication that we are on. Depending who you talk to, you can get a variety of answers on the subject. Drink, don't drink, so forth, you get the idea. If you are getting blotchy after having a drink, then I would think it would be in your best interest not to drink while taking your meds, as it sounds like an interaction problem, but that is a question for your physician. Now am I saying stop taking your meds for a day and then go drink, NOPE, I do not advocate missing meds to go "tie one on". I won't lie, I have taken a sip or three but I really try to watch what I am doing and I save those sips for a very special occasion and yes, I tell my doc.
