Statins and alcohol

Is it okay to drink when taking Statins? - Here's what you need to know.


Drinking alcohol while taking statins is not advisable.  If you do choose to drink, it is important that you do not drink excessively.  Consuming large amounts of alcohol with a statin increases the risk of side effects.  Any side effects you do experience may become worse, and new side effects can occur.  Some side effects may even be serious.
