Patients taking Aricept should not consume alcohol because the combination may increase sedation and drowsiness. Moreover, the sedative effects of alcohol may act as a depressant, obscuring the therapeutic effects
of Aricept and complicating treatment.

However, please also do speak to the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med, wish your mother the best!
