Hi.
How are you doing?
It is best to avoid drinking alcoholic beverages.  There are patients with lymphoma or leukemia who experience pain after intake of alcohol.  
Good luck.

I thank you for your reply and would like to ask about "Stemzine" Prochlorperazine tablets I have been prescribed for dizziness. Are they O.K  ? Any side effects or dangers.

Hi.
Prochlorperazine is a drug used to control nausea, vomiting, and dizziness.  It can also be used to treat psychological or mental disorders, as well as non-psychotic anxiety disorders.
Side effects include drowsiness, tremors, restlessness, dysphagia or difficulty in swallowing, yellowish discoloration of the skin or eyes, etc.  If you experience any of the side effects while taking the drug, please discontinue use and report immediately to your doctor.  
This drug may also have interaction with other drugs that you may be taking.  Inform your doctor also if you are taking alcohol, anticonvulsants, lithium, drugs for Parkinson’s disease, nutritional supplements, herbal products, etc.
Good luck.
