Whitney;  Welcome to the forums. 

The short answer to your question is that drinking will not effect your medication.  The longer answer is to make sure that the drinking doesn't prevent you from taking your meds, and keep in mind that your liver and kidney have to process both the meds and the alcohol - so try to be gentle on them.  The most important point is to make sure to take your meds each day.

Again, welcome,

Hi Whitney,

Sounds like you are responding very well to your treatment. It always makes me feel better hearing of others responding to treatment to alwell, so a big thumbs up all round for the result.

Still adjusting to my situation aswell and it is tough but those numbers should go along way to giving you some peace of mind.

Next step UD VL and I'm sure you will be there soon.
