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?

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. Alcohol can also temparily lower your blood pressure which may not be good to do with Inderal (propranolol) on board. Read more

I take klonipon 0.5 mg and Depakote 3 times a day what is a normal laying down blood pressure. I am in Xanax (alprazolam) detox

I take klonipon 0.5 mg and Depakote 3 times a day what is a normal laying down blood pressure. I am in Xanax (alprazolam) detox

Normal range: BP lying down and sitting up are generally pretty much the same. Withdrawal from benzodiazepines, if done too rapidly, can result in higher blood pressure as a withdrawal syndrome response. Whatever your normal pressure is (110/70 is average) should be your lying down blood pressure while being tapered from xanax, (alprazolam) especially if Clonazepam is being used to help taper you.

How can I lower blood pressure?

Depends: Hi. If you're obese or overweight, weight loss may lower BP. Regular exercise may help lower BP. Weight loss is easier said than done, however. The most direct and proven means is to take BP meds ("antihypertensives"). Personally, I would never put off treating high BP with the hope that weight loss or exercise might control it. High BP injures and kills. Ask your doc. Good luck! Read more
