Lupus and Alcohol: What's the Risk?

The best thing to do when you have lupus? Avoid alcohol completely

The final answer is lupus, medications and alcohol do not mix. Alcohol makes your liver sensitive to the effects of the medications you are taking, and you should not drink alcohol while you are on certain medications. Studies have shown that an occasional alcoholic drink is not particularly harmful, but excessive alcohol and binge drinking should be avoided.

To be on the safe side, avoid alcohol when you suffer from lupus. It will take the guesswork out of determining if alcohol is good or bad for you.
