Depending on the cause, complications of alcohol intolerance or other reactions to alcoholic beverages can include:

  • Migraines. Histamines, contained in some alcoholic beverages and also released by your immune system during an allergic reaction, may trigger migraines in some people.
  • A severe allergic reaction. In very rare cases, an allergic reaction can be life-threatening (anaphylactic reaction) and require emergency treatment.
