Doctor

A:   Welcome To Ask The Doctor.
You can consume alcohol with this medicine. There should not be any interaction.
But I would advise you not to drink alcohol as you never know you get interaction with which constituent of the drug.
Moreover you are taking this medication for weight loss and alcohol makes you gain a lot.
I hope the information helps.
Stay Healthy.
