Alcohol may interfere with Berinert Infusions, it is not recommended to drink alcohol. Stop the IV infusion and get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to Berinert: hives; wheezing or difficult breathing; feeling like you might pass out; or swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor at once if you have any other serious side effect, such as: new or worsening pain; sudden numbness or weakness, specially on one side of the body; sudden headache, confusion, problems with vision, speech, or balance; stomach pain or swelling; chest pain, sudden cough, rapid breathing, fast heart rate; or pain, swelling, warmth, or redness in one or both legs.

Less serious Berinert side effects may include: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain; cold symptoms such as stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat; mild itching or rash; or mild headache.

Please take care, alcohol may possibly aggravate the side effects so please avoid drinking.

Take care, best wishes!
