Most doctors will tell you it's okay to drink in moderation. Keep in mind, though, that many of the medications we take are filtered through the liver, so putting too much extra work on your liver might not be the best for you.
Since I'm taking not only Balsalazide but Lipitor and other medications that can be liver toxic, I rarely drink alcohol. But that was my decision, and I didn't drink much before I had UC anyway.
