Humira and alcohol

I realize this will make me sound like a lush (probably because I am a bit of a lush) but are there any interactions between Humira and alcohol? If so, what are the negative affects? Have there been any studied conducted on the subject (I'd be happy to sign up!) They are talking about putting me on Humira but I know that I am not going to give up my booze between now and then (I'm working on it, just not cold turkey). Does anyone here drink and take Humira?

I'm not aware of issues that require you to stop drinking whilst on Humira. I do drink, but not as much as I used to. I know that others on here do as well.

This is what the manufacturer has to say...

I drink while on it maybe a glass of wine a night and don't think it has any ill effects.

I don't see why not just keep it in moderation

I can categorically say that they have no interactions, if they did, I'd be in big trouble now. lol
