Drinking on Stelara

Can drinking alcohol while on Stelara, or any other biologic for that matter, cause it to be ineffective?

Your liver has the potential to become ineffective.

Not recommended.

Hi mwr5319: I asked my dermatologist and my primary care doctor about drinking wine while taking Stelara....both said "in moderation" is absolutely fine. Stelara does not have the same negative effects on the liver as some of the other meds. I didn't ask about any other type of alcohol as I only drink wine (both red and white).

Good luck!!!!
