Absolutely! Moderation is the key. I used to take provigal and now I take Nuvigal, I will have a few beers occasionally but gave up liquor completely. My concern is of taking medication and everything does harm to your liver. I don't want to help speed the damage along with alcohol.

MSF 23 MS and Alcohol: Friend or Foe?
I’ll drink to THAT!
I hope this helps.
By now, we all know the lifestyle drill.
Exercise = good
Smoking = bad
Alcohol = possibly, maybe?

As if this wasn’t confusing enough, the last month has seen the publication of differing advice on alcohol.
Public Health England announced that drinkers should aim for two consecutive alcohol-free days a week to reduce health problems and improve well-being. While a massive worldwide study - the largest to date - published in the prestigious Lancet journal countered that the safest level of alcohol consumption was… zero. Any amount - no matter how small - carried risks.
So what does this mean for those of us with multiple sclerosis - already contending with a serious, chronic health condition?
Should we go sober for October, nudge it into November and onwards? Has the time come for us to pour our favourite tipple down the sink and join the fifth of British adults who abstain from alcohol, according to the Office for National Statistics?
Not so fast, says Gavin Giovannoni, Professor of Neurology at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, and himself partial to a good pinot. Go teetotal if it suits you, but if not, the key is moderation, moderation, moderation, he says in an interview with Shift.ms.
“I think overall if you have moderate or low alcohol consumption it’s pretty safe. It’s the excessive alcohol consumption that’s bad for health in general - and for people with MS.”

And by moderation, Giovannoni means following the UK government guidelines for women and men and not drinking over 14 units a week or - in layperson’s terms - no more than a bottle and a half of wine or five pints of lager every seven days. In addition, he says it is important to have two or three alcohol-free days a week - and whatever you do - no binge drinking.
