Hi there!

Lipotor has a long half life i.e. the body takes a long time to clear it. Alcohol can alter its metabolism by affecting the liver enzymes in either a positive or negative manner depending on the amount of alcohol consumed; which in turn could result in decreased effects or increased side effects and hence is not advised.
Hope this information is helpful.

Take care!
