I usually take Atenolol at night for HBP, at what time should I take it the days that I'll be drinking alcohol?

Drink Sparingly: Atenolol is almost completely removed by the kidney, Alcohol is detoxified by the liver(good).

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