... I wouldn't worry about it. It's not as if you drink heavily every day. That would be another story. You are not going to damage your liver overnight. And I don't think an occasional drink or two is going to hurt you. In fact, many people who take statins still have a drink or two each day. Everything in moderation. :wave: (2 replies)

... jcorn, I don't think there's a problem. In fact I think it's still a good idea to have 2 drinks a day for cardiac health. Don't overdo it though; I'm sure a HEAVY drinker on statins increases his risk for cirrhosis. (10 replies)
