4 doctors agree

In brief: 1-2 drinks..

1-2 drinks of alcohol separately from time of taking the medicine should not affect the effectiveness of the medication/or cause problems, but be sensible.
Be good and don't drink and drive. Good luck.

In brief: Yes

The two are not known to negatively interact, having a drink should be okay.
