Can u drink alchol while taking beta blockers

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have being diagnosed with overactive thyroid last week I am on 1 beta blocker a day. My daughter's Christianing is next week and I am not sure whether I can drink on them. My pharmacist said just one or two but my doctor said yes. Just wondering if any of yous tat take beta blockers do yous drink on them and if so is there any side affects.

    Hi, I'm on 40mg Propranolol 3 x day and rarely drink but occasionally will have a glass of wine..nothing stronger. I did worry about having alcohol particularly because I can't drink much at all before I feel the effects but I seem to be OK with 1 glass of white or rosé... red seems to take effect quicker! I def don't touch spirits...but I would always check with the GP.
