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. Have a good holiday season! ...Read more

Drink Sparingly: Atenolol is almost completely removed by the kidney, Alcohol is detoxified by the liver(good). One problem is atenolol is really not a 24 hour medication (18-20hours), thus because I presume you are drinking when your atenolol is at a low level, drinking a great deal may increase the chance of abnormal heart beats. It is best not to drink too much. I put patients on 1/2 their atenolol twice a day ...Read more

Don't know, but...: Since there are no double-blind, randomized control trials to answer this question, can't tell you for sure.
