I'm not trying to judge anyone, but I'm just saying that there is no way to know for sure how dangerous it is and, like all medicines, it's going to react differently for each person. I'm one who couldn't take it alone because of my liver...I can't even imagine what alcohol added in to the mix would have done. You would maybe be fine drinking on it. Mine had the label on it saying not to drink alcohol, so I'm not sure why yours doesn't. Maybe it's up to the pharmacy and the insurance company, maybe it's up to the manufacturer, I don't know. But, you could ask a million different people whether it's safe, you could even ask a million different doctors whether it's safe, and you are going to get a lot of different answers. I would trust my doctor over what people on this or any forum say, as the people here don't have medical degrees and don't do this for a living.
Again, I'm not trying to judge you at all, but it sounds to me like you are trying to get some justification...you are trying to get someone to say that it's okay for you to do it because everyone else is allowed to do it. Unfortunately, life is not fair. It's not fair that you have RA and it's not fair that you can't do the same things everyone else without RA can do. The sooner I accepted that I can NOT do what everyone else does most of the time, the sooner I got over the bad feelings and was able to move on with my life and try to make the most of it. Harboring these feelings of resentment and trying to figure out questions that don't have concrete answers is only going to cause you more stress and make your illness worse.
