Depends: There is no reason to wait any time between taking a beta-blocker and a glass of wine, as long as you are limiting your wine consumption to 7 drinks/week in women (and older men, twice that in men). Wine makes some people flush and get lightheaded, and beta blockers can do the same thing, so if you are drinking 2-3 glasses of wine on one occasion, shorter acting beta blockers (inderal) should wait.

Why wait?: There no reason to wait. The only reason to avoid alcohol would be if the biaxin (clarithromycin) were upsetting your stomach.
