Avoid alcohol.: I hope you are well. You are on medications that interact with each other (propranolol and PTU) and adding alcohol would worsen the interactions. The effects of propranolol are increased by alcohol. Propranolol can worsen heart failure. PTU can also increase the effects of propranolol. I suggest that you have a medication review with your primary care professional, ASAP. I hope this helps.See 2 more doctor answers
