I'm taking 50 mg of atenolol per day (2-25 mg pills per day). I take this for essential tremors. Can I drink alcohol on this?

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.

I take half of a 25mg atenenol can I drink alcohol? Will this effect the pill? It's forr hyperthyroidism

Probably not. A low dose of atenolol should not be a problem with modest alcohol consumption. You say you are taking atenolol for hyperthyroidism, but your profile says you are on synthroid (thyroxine). Why are you on synthroid (thyroxine) if you are hyperthyroid? If you are hypothyroid but taking too much synthroid (thyroxine), then you should stop the synthroid (thyroxine) and then restart at a lower dose. Read more...

Serotonin receptors. One of the reasons you should not drink on seroytergic drugs is exactly this reaction which I have noted can cause severe suicidality even with as little as two drinks. This is a worse depression than when you started on the medication. The prosuicidal effect can last up to 72 hours. Alcohol can cause depression on its own anyway. Do yourself a favor and stop drinking even if hospital is needed. Read more...
