Great question: Always ask a Dr about these things when they prescribe. It increases the effects and can dangerously lower blood pressure. So, generally avoid mixing but if you do plan a holiday drink keep it to one small one and prepare by having someone you can rely on if needed. Try to talk to your Dr for advice specific to you. Have a good holiday season!
