No!: It actually is expected to increase ALL the effects of alcohol - the ones you might want and others too! It is absolutely not recommended for you to drink during Tx. Talk to your Doc about it and how to manage this and other difficult parts of getting straight. You deserve to feel supported and good about doing this.
