Will alcohol interact with finasteride? If so what kind of reaction would I have.
Can I have an occasional glass of wine while on finasteride?

Hi, this should be fine, according to the interactions checker there are no warnings... https://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=1091-0,1034-14582
In general, most users of finasteride do not need to modify their current alcohol intake. It's always a good idea to review this with the physician who prescribed the medication, particularly if there are other concurrent or coexisting health issues.

Hello Al Barton. I did some reading up on your question and found nothing to suggest that you could not drink any alcohol while on finasteride. I am not a doctor, so you might want to check with your doctor or pharmacist to get thier answer. The very best to you.
