I had a type A and type B aortic dissection about six months ago and had surgery to fix the type A. The type B is being managed with a beta blocker and two blood pressure meds.
I asked my cardiologist about alcohol and he said I could have one drink a day. I wondered what advice other dissection survivors out there have gotten from their doctors about alcohol. I'm going on vacation and wondered about having more than uo to two drinks a day while on vacation.
They say that alcohol can interfere with blood pressure meds, but my experience so far is that my blood pressure can sometimes be quite a bit lower after a pint.
