Is it ok to have a couple glasses of wine bc I take a tiny bit of Suboxone each day, levothyroxine, atenolol, hctz, lexapro, (escitalopram) vyvanse, klonopin?

Is it ok to have a couple glasses of wine bc I take a tiny bit of Suboxone each day, levothyroxine, atenolol, hctz, lexapro, (escitalopram) vyvanse, klonopin?

Alcohol not helpful.: It has been my experience that antidepressant medication does not work well, if at all, in the presence of alcohol. Also, as I see it, a combination of alcohol and Klonopin (clonazepam) is always contraindicated due the same brain receptors being affected and due to the high potential for addiction to both, especially when there is a personal or family history of alcohol abuse. ...Read more

Is it okay to drink while taking atenolol? I know the combination can make me more tired, but I don’t plan to drive. I just like to have a glass or two of wine some evenings. Is this safe?

Perhaps: The first question is why are you taking the atenolol? If for high blood pressure, a single serving of red wine 4 oz will ot interfere with the medication. If you are taking it for anxiety, tremor, cardiac arrhythmia, or headache, then there is a risk that the alcohol could have an adverse effect and over-ride the therapeutic effect of the atenolol. ...Read more

I take atenelol 25mg 2 a day for pressure and celexa (citalopram) 10mg 1 a day. Can I have some red wine and how much.?

I take atenelol 25mg 2 a day for pressure and celexa (citalopram) 10mg 1 a day. Can I have some red wine and how much.?

None is best: It is best not to drink alcohol with either of those medications. Alcohol can make depression worse and elevate blood pressure. I noticed that you are also taking NSAIDs and that can also raise your blood pressure. If you do drink I would definitely suggest that you never consume more than one small (4oz.) glass of wine at a time. ...Read more

How much Tenormin (atenolol) can I take to control severe anxiety?

How much Tenormin (atenolol) can I take to control severe anxiety?

Consult your doc: Atenolol is a 'cardioselective' beta-blocker. In layman's terms, it blocks the effects of adrenaline on the heart, and blunts the 'fight or flight' syndrome that anxiety-sufferers often needlessly find themselves in. This bodily response to anxiety (rapid heart rate, sweating) can further promote anxiety, a self-perpeuating cycle. Too high a dose can dangerously lower hr & bp, so consult your doc! ...Read more
