Alcohol and Cimzia

I just started taking Cimzia last week, still on intro dose. Can I have a glass of wine or a beer once in a while? Anyone had a reaction with alcohol and Cimzia?
I am sure this had been already talked about Ė just canít seems to locateÖ

I haven't been on Cimzia, but I've been on other biologics and they're fine to have alcohol with. I think it's just with antibiotics or antidepressants you have to worry about it.

Also just did a quick search online to confirm and it should be fine.

I didn't see any warning on the Cimzia website. Assuming your liver enzymes are ok on the drug I don't see why it should be an issue.
