     I am taking quite a few meds but was wondering if one glass of Arbor Mist wine would hurt on Thanksgiving?

I found alcohol to have absolutely no effect on my UC. Everyone is different, and as with anything moderation is the key.

I can drink a couple of glasses of wine, but any more and I notice effects on my gut.
So go for it, in moderation.

Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; use prednisone & Rowasa for flares. 
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed gluten, other intolerances; started diet without gluten, soy, dairy, tomato etc. Replete probiotic first, then Forte pills. 
Achieved remission for the first time in many, many years!? Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.

Arbor Mist has almost no Alcohol in it but it has sugar so if sugar bothers you it might.
Sugar seems to bother me but if I have a nonsweet red wine I am fine if I limit it to a couple of glasses. I would check on line with the 6mp and the blood pressure medicine to see if they interact with alcohol but if they don't I'm sure it is fine.

I'm not sure, since I'm not on the meds you're on. Maybe check with your doctor or read the medication inserts just to be sure. I would think you'd be fine with just one glass though. I know I'm planning on having a couple glasses of red wine over the holiday. =)

I can drink beer or wine, but anything harder can sometimes aggravate my uc so I stay away.
But everyone is different...

My doctor has never had a problem with my consuming a couple of glasses of sweet red wine on occasion. He thinks it has no effect on my colitis. As everyone else says, I would drink in moderation. Too much will cause just about anyone problems.

- Experimenting with this or that on occasion. Always open to new ideas.

Moderation is the key for many things that affect my UC. As a general rule though, I would stay on the light side of alcohol consumption to be on the safe side.
