alcohol has never affected my UC. I like to drink hard cider and also like stoli & diet coke, caramel martinin's, pomegranite martini's, sangria........ I have a few drinks a week (I used to drink a lot more) and sometimes, a bit more = )
I notice w/the pred and azathioprine, I am tired so I usually do not want to drink that much and I am not sure but I also think it may affect me more.
I think if you are not used to drinking, I would stay away from anything w/a high alcohol content like hard alcohol, I think the low carb michelob light is not high in alcohol content.
