oh, this is a tough one and great answers by all here.  My feeling (regardless if right or wrong) is that... you start mixing anything with meds you may be on is definately a no-no.  Like many, I enjoy (on occassion) a glass of wine, but I also know how it affects me post treatment (my balance is already off, the meds I'm on, etc!).

I'm a daughter of a pharmacist/chemist (for the Brit folks) and know that mixing meds and alcohol or anything other "substance" can not only affect the meds for our AN's, but can be a leathal combo. 

Please be careful folks.  Please.

I LOVE my vino, but, when I drink even 1 glass of wine, I get a buzzing directly center at back of my head, like tinnitus only it doesn't sound like it's coming from my right ear - really weird.  Maybe my bode's trying to tell me something?, still, love my vino with dinner.   Nancy
