Other viewpoints?: I'm not an expert on this. I'd think such a wee amount would not cause a great problem. As you seem to know it is generally not advised to drink any alcohol with this drug. If you can control your intake to this level - i expect you'll be fine. I also wonder if you might question the need for such a powerful medication. Think about psychotherapy as an alternative with tapering off the drug. Best.
