Caution: Cimetidine can impair your body's ability to break down alcohol, which means that you could get drunk on smaller amounts of alcohol than you normally would. Also, alcohol often worsens diseases for which you may be taking Cimetidine in the first place. I would avoid alcohol, but if the alcohol is important to you, you may want to be on a different stomach medicine. Good luck.
