What to do if I am taking 1mg of klonopin and one 25mg of zoloft, (sertraline) and one 50mg of inderol for blood pressure, is it ok to have 1 12oz beer?
NO ALCOHOL!: You cannot combine klonopin and alcohol. Klonopin stays in your system for more than a day after taking it as well. The combination can have an unpredictable / multiplying effect on sedation, respiratory depression, and intoxication. Alcohol is not worth the risk.

High BP injures and kills. Ask your doc. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Even if you have a strong family history of high blood pressure you should still follow these recommendations. ...Read more
