Is 200mg of COq 10 safe and effective for lowering blood pressure? Current meds are Zoloft losartan betapace and nexium (esomeprazole). Any interactions?

There are two forms: of CoQ10. Neither has been regulated by the FDA. (One form appears to have more antioxidant properties). Several conditions have been associated with low CoQ10 levels including HTN, heart failure, certain cancers, gingivitis, gastric ulcers, etc. Currently there has not been a consensus arrived at as to the BP lowering effects (due to lack of controlled studies). May affect Zoloft (sertraline) level a bit.

Alcohol and BP meds: The answer to your question is "Yes". Alcohol in moderation should not make you have a low BP when taking losartan and betapace (sotalol).

All three of these: medications are broken down by your liver. If your liver is normal it should not be dangerous.

Be more specific: Please tell us what drinking alcohol "in moderation" means to you. Know that alcohol is a CNS depressant.
