I was just prescribed quinapril and would like to know what OTC pain reliever is best when needed. What are the limits on alcohol?

In brief: Avoid potassium

It's a great time to take this precaution - the only thing better would have been to get info from the doctor but they can be so quickly in and out that it's not always easy.
All the usual OTC choices are a concern w/ respect to kidney function so you should call to get their advice and/or ask your pharmacist. The risk is not high, but worth attention. Moderate alcohol intake is not a problem.
