Doctor Cameron :

Combining warfarin together with ethanol may cause you to bleed more easily. If you are taking warfarin you should avoid large amounts of alcohol; that being said, moderate consumption (one to two drinks per day) are not likely to affect the response to warfarin if you have normal liver function
