I am concerned: about ANYONE who would ask that question, and that concern is that you have either alcohol abuse or dependence. You are also on Flagyl, which has an antabuse-like reaction if alcohol is taken with it. You should be asking this question of your doctor, but I strongly suspect you know what that physician would say, and that is why you are asking online. Discuss your drinking with a counselor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
