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

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
