Depends: Whether alcohol is good or not depends on many factors such as your overall health, your age and whether you have any medical conditions. If you are currently taking any medications also plays a role. Lastly the quantity and type of alcohol is a factor in how alcohol may affect you.

No interaction: There is no significant interaction between alcohol and nebivolol (Bystolic). Don't dink to excess, but low to moderate alcohol isn't likely to be a problem. If you remain concerned, discuss with the doctor who prescribed the nebivolol.
