Hi, it isn't really advisable to drink whilst taking Metformin... there is a risk of contracting a condition known as lactic acidosis. You could discuss this with your doctor to see how high the risks are?

Also drinking can raise your blood sugar. Its not safe to drink much when you have diabetes.
