In addition, the use of ethanol or products containing alcohol during treatment with ketoconazole may trigger a disulfiram-like reaction in some patients, which includes unpleasant effects such as flushing, rash, peripheral edema, nausea, and headache. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
