Hi duckpopper

I am not medically qualified, had a quick peek at and alcohol is not banned from either drug, but as always with alcohol it does effect the anti-coagulant effect of drugs.

So I think the answer is go and enjoy the wedding have one of two glasses of bubbly but not to excess (as in most things in life) There is no indication that some modest alcohol will give you any problems. Of course you could always ring the doctor or pharmacy and check if you are nervous about it

Have a great day



Hi duckpopper,

Last year when I was on bisoprolol and warfarin I asked my GP about drinking during my holiday in Spain and he said no more than 2 small glasses of wine a day.

Enjoy the wedding.
