The precautions advise against daily use of alcohol, as the combination can cause stomach bleeding. They advise limit the alcohol use.

Hope this helps.

Do not drink alcohol while taking indomethacin. Alcohol can increase the risk of stomach bleeding caused by indomethacin. Do not use any other over-the-counter cold, allergy, or pain medication without first asking your doctor or pharmacist. Many medicines available over the counter contain aspirin or other medicines similar to indomethacin (such as ibuprofen, ketoprofen, or naproxen). If you take certain products together you may accidentally take too much of this type of medication. Read the label of any other medicine you are using to see if it contains aspirin, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, or naproxen.

Hello briarose55. I recommend the two not be mixed. The risks would out weigh any benfit to taking the drug. Wishing you well along with good health, pledge free discount card
