NO!!!!!!!!: Alcohol can enhance the effects of any anticoagulant drug, and can increase the chance of dangerous and even life-threatening bleeding. The person to ask these questions of is your doctor, who needs to know about your drinking history in order to treat you safely and effectively, and your pharmacist who is dispensing your medications. If you have an alcohol problem, get help for it.
