It is generally recommended not to use metformin and alcohol at the same time. Taking metformin and alcohol together can increase your risk of developing a life-threatening condition called lactic acidosis. However, drinking small amounts of alcohol should not be a problem for most people taking the medication. However it would be better if you spoke to your doc./pharmacist for more information as he/she would know your medical history better, hope this helps?
