Alcohol: There are no currently available drugs to reduce alcohol consumption. The only drug in the past used to control alcohol use was "Antabuse". This must only be used under careful medical supervision because of its SERIOUS side effects. The best drug to reduce alcohol use is self control. Barring this try good psychotherapy and or AA.

No: There is a pill you could take to discourage drinking alcohol. Antabuse (disulfiram) causes people to become sick when they drink alcohol and over time people often avoid alcohol to avoid getting sick (or they just stop taking the pill). Revia (naltrexone) may help reduce the tendency to drink excessively by blocking the opiate response that for some people is coupled with their alcohol intake.
Alcohol and Medicati: The answer really depends on the other medications. If the other medication (s) are central nervous system depressants, mixing with alcohol can be dangerous or even deadly. Some medications can have an additive liver toxicity when mixed with alcohol. Just to be on the safe side, avoid mixing medications with alcohol.
Depends on how much: Many people routinely have an after-dinner or before-bedtime drink to help them relax and sleep, and for the most part, in most people, one standard drink is not going to cause physical or psychological harm. However, alcohol is a short-acting drug, and rebound insomnia occurs in some people, leading to drinking more alcohol and a vicious cycle or even more impaired sleep, requiring more alcohol.
1. Never have a: Hangover. 2. Never have a blackout. 3. Never pass out from alcohol use. 4. Never get arrested for a dui. 5. Never have arguments with your spouse about your drinking. 6.

Depends on the medic: With some medications, local is not a problem; with other medications it might be dangerous or even lethal. You can check interaction with alcohol online. If in doubt – drinking less or not drinking at all is always better.
Then don't: As we continue to figure out what the true health benefits vs risks alcohol has on the human body, I am not currently recommending to my patients who do not drink, that they start drinking. However, if you already drink 1-2 drinks a day, there seems to be good evidence that it is beneficial. Thus, I do not make them stop. But don't start, especially at 33. Too much time to develop an addiction.
