Alcohol, I assume?: Antifungal agents like itraconazole have strong potential for liver damage. Even though no interactions between itraconazole & ethanol (alcohol) are listed, i'd advise against drinking while on this drug, for it has many other interactions, such as grapefruit juice & dozens of medications. Better to be safe.
