same for me, with most of the news meds after the transplant, alot of them says not to consume alchol while taking them and i am on oxycontin so there is definately no alcohol with it. When i was in college and even before (sorry just being truthful) i really didnt have problems with alcohol, just if i drank to much and the lupus affects my kidneys. but now i dont drink because 1) i cant with the meds 2) i just never feel the urge, i was never a big drinker and i think i got it all out of my system by the time was older. (something about
not getting in trouble if i got caught) but it does sound like alcohol is not agreeing with you and your med probs, if people try to get you to drink just tell them your the DD and most people wont push after that. good luck.
