Is it safe to drink alcohol if I have acute intermittent porphyria?

Most doctors with experience caring for people with acute intermittent porphyria strongly recommend that you avoid alcohol as much as possible. If it is not possible for you to complete avoid alcohol, it is best that you try to drink as little as possible. Heavy red wines, brandy, and other liqueurs are known to be particularly bad for triggering attacks.
