Hi Em, Yes you can have a glass of wine, i think they say no more than a few units a week, so you go ahead and enjoy it. Think we all deserve one now and again with what we go through. take care x

I am on mtx just now and they want me to go on rituximab so they gave me a leaflet yesterday on rituximab and it states that you can drink alcohol while on rituximab but most people on it are also on mtx so they should only drink in small amounts, i have the occasional glass of wine and have done so for years without any problems

Hi girls, Thanks for your reply's.
I will have the occasional glass and chill out.
Does anyone find that it makes the tongue sore as a friend who is on Humira and methatrexate finds it does, I am just on methatrexate.

Hi Em,
I have been on mtx for a long time and take 2-4 glasses of red each week and have never had any trouble with it. In fact my doc say's it is ok in moderation.I really look forward to my glass of wine. Deborah.

I've got Wegener's for over a year now almost died from this disease. I'm currently still taking steroids, antibiotics a long with Rituxian and have been given the OK to have a few beers, which I have and all blood work is still good including my liver. I do not drink for a few days after my Rituxian Infusion just to insure I've given the drug time to work within my system. Again I think moderation is the key here including a healthy diet. In the end listen to your body is my way of looking at things.

I agree, a little glass here and there shouldn't be a problem.
