Question

@nshq asked:

Question from the wife, can you take Aspirin with alcohol? I hope she means can you drink alcohol if you've taken aspirin!

Answer

We posed this question to Professor Peter Rothwell from the University of Oxford...

Peter -   You can take a moderate amount of alcohol with Aspirin.  There's no major problem there.  If you drink a lot then it will increase the risk of stomach problems.
