Not a good idea.: I highly recommend limiting alcohol intake.
Co-administration of benzodiazepines with alcohol intake can cause very serious problems. Such as sedation, somnolence, even apnea.
Your prescriber should be made aware of this, and non-sedating medications should be used.
For abdominal pain specifically, it could be due to reflux, ulcer, pancreatic pathology or other causes of abdominal pain. -GL
