Alcohol and hepatitis C - Alcoholic Liver Disease for Patients
Can I be treated for HCV if I drink alcohol?
People who drink alcohol are eligible for hepatitis C treatment, although drinking is not recommended. Drinking can interfere with your ability to take medications properly or make all of your lab or doctor appointments. With hepatitis C treatment, taking your medication as prescribed, getting lab tests done, and making all doctor visits are all critical.
