I am on the beta-blocker pindolol and was wondering if I do drink, what effects would it cause?

In brief: See below
Although there are no drug interactions listed for Pindolol & ethanol (drinking alcohol), it is never a good idea to mix medications with alcohol.
Take all meds with full glass of water to be sure the med gets into the stomach (some can be very irritating to esophagus). Alcohol & beta blockers (pindolol) can irritate stomach or worsen acid reflux.
