I read in the leaflet that alcohol should be avoided but my consultant said it was okay in moderation. I am on 6mg patch of Rigotine and have been for the last four months.
I find that I am able to have two glasses of either red or white wine. The red wine gives me no problems. Fizzy white does not either.
However, it all depends on which still white I drink as to how I react. It seems immaterial as to the category i.e. chenin blanc, chardonnay and so on. But rather the individual wine. Last night, for example, I had two 125ml glasses of a chardonnay and found that almost immediately I felt hot and started to have what felt like a panic attack. Why did I continue drinking? It was so gradual as to be almost imperceptible. It was only later that I pinned down the chardonnay as the likely cause.
My question is: does anyone else have or has heard of this sort of reaction to random white wines? If so, any ideas what could cause it?
