Can I Drink While taking Medicines for Asthma

Patient: Can i drink alcohol while taking steroids for my asthma?

 

 

Doctor: Alcohol in the bloodstream may interfere with the functioning of the steroid that you are taking for asthma and increase the chances for side effects of the drug. Use of alcohol and steroid medication for asthma may also cause stomach irritation.I would advise you to refrain from taking alcohol while on medication. Take care.
