It should be okay to take alcohol with ethinyl estradiol. There is a noted interaction, which is very minor. It'll be a good idea to separate the dose of ethinyl estradiol and the alcohol.

You should use the interactions checker at the top of the page and read the food interactons. There is a minor interaction howerver, I would not take the medication with an alcoholic beverage. I would take the medication separate from drinking alcohol. If you still have any concerns you should ask your pharmacist or ask your physician to make sure. Sandy
