Hello
One 4 ounce glass of wine is probably OK.
This combination however, has a warning about possible interactions, but not studies enough.....another reference however, says that alcohol decreases the effectiveness of alcohol

If you were my patient, I would say no more than 4 oz once a week.

You need to talk to your doctor.

Thank you very much. I'm not a a big drinker anyway but enjoy the odd glass and since I'm on it for three months I though I would ask as I forgot to ask my doctor. Thank you again.
