Hi, chronic alcohol consumption leads to liver enzyme induction which are responsible for metabolism of drugs given to treat COPD. This means that drugs will be washed or degraded earlier in patients who are chronic alcoholics as a result COPD will not be adequetaly controlled.

Higher doses of COPD medication will be needed in the patients with chronic alcohol consumption.
