Tricky: The drug is going to be out of the system by 3 to 5 days even being pessimistic. BUT: 1) you can develop a psychological queeziness to alcohol that is not from the drug anymore. This can be permanent. 2) you can develop liver injury from either and this makes alcohol a bad idea. so... can't say in your case; generally a week is really pessimistic.
