Yes: As long as you are not alcoholic with changes on your blood counts, there is no problem taking alleve and drinking alcohol responsibly. An alcoholic would have to worry about bleeding issues due to long term affects of alcohol on the human body, but if you are just having a couple of drinks, there would not be any issue at all combining the two. Also, stay hydrated though! hope that helps.
