    In general, consuming large amounts of alcohol is known to cause changes in behavior and sometimes causes blackouts. Allopurinol does not affect how your body reacts to alcohol. However, consuming large quantities of alcohol can result in decreased effects of allopurinol. It is best to avoid drinking alcohol when you are taking medicines.
