I'm taking 50 mg of atenolol per day ( 2-25 mg pills per day). I take this for essential tremors. Can I drink alcohol on this?
Great question: Always ask a Dr about these things when they prescribe. It increases the effects and can dangerously lower blood pressure. So, generally avoid mixing but if you do plan a holiday drink keep it to one small one and prepare by having someone you can rely on if needed. Try to talk to your Dr for advice specific to you.

It is best not to drink too much. I put patients on 1/2 their atenolol twice a day ...Read more

Atenolol is a relatively long-acting (24 hours) beta-blocker. Beta-blockers as a group of medications calm or slow the heart rate down. They stop the swings in hr from stress or nerves. If someone is on a good dose of a beta-blocker and are startled, the medication suppresses the pounding of your heart. It also won't allow the hr to climb with exercise. It's used to ...Read more
