In moderation: Rosuvastatin is a cholesterol lowering drug, and like all "statins" they do metabolize through the liver, as does alcohol. Caution should be used for this reason, and liver function tests should be monitored periodically. Drink responsibly and use common sense. Do not drink in excess ever, and especially while on a statin drug. Good luck.

Alcohol: Alcohol in small quantities can be imbided when one is taking rosuvastatin. In general no more than one small drink a day would be a good idea. Statin drugs and alcohol both can affect the liver so a lot of alcohol is a bad idea when on rosuvastatin.

Usually: not a problem. But better to discuss with the doc who is prescribing your rosuva.
