Follow Dr. Advice: Tom, I really do not feel comfortable in advising you on this situation without the ability to examine you. Since you have seen your doctor and have had an examination by him/her, I think I would follow the doctors advice. Do not drink alcohol with THAT medication. It will make you sick.
