Minimum One Time Alcohol

I have checked every med I take against the use of one or two drinks on Christmas and they say it will enhance the effects but none say it will kill me. Clonidine, Metoprolol, Pravastatin, Lorazepam, Prilosec and Prednisone and Methimazole.
Please respond if you have had adverse effects from such a small amount of alcohol with these drugs.

Thank you

I would not take a chance....it's not worth it. Just my opinion.

What if you have 2 drinks, which could impair your judgement and decide to go for 3 or 4??  Only my opinion but I agree with Laura.

2-1, you ladies win! It's not so much that I won't control only the one or two drinks but with graves', there's no telling what setback I might suffer. Just not worth the chance.
Thank you for your input.

I'm with you about not really into it I just thought a nice drink of Baileys would be fun, never had it and the commercials look so good :-)
Don't need a hangover or backset...thanks and hugs
