With the talk about the modification to the Avonex label to be more clear about the potential for severe liver damage I decided to call MSLifeline (Serano) to see what they had to say a few weeks ago. The person that answered the phone said that they don’t recommend any alcohol, but a glass of wine every now and again should be OK. She then instructed me to talk to my Dr. for more info. I was shocked by their answer, and disappointed, since I had just found some alcohol that I really enjoyed and would like to have one about once a week. I then proceeded to call my neuro, Hopson, to see what he had to say. He said that in moderation, one beer, is fine. Which is some good news, though I’d have probably continued down that path anyways!
