Ramipril and Alcohol

I am 61 diabetic Type 2 (on Metformin and Ramipril 5mg) and have lived in Spain since Jan 2007 when we both retired. My wife complains of mood swings and aggression. I have constant headaches and cough. Was upgraded to 5mg from 2.5mg in Oct 2007. Of course living in Spain has meant an increase in alcohol which I know it says you should avoid. I am not an alcoholic and in fact have now ceased drinking. Has anyone else similar experience? even better is there a medical person who can comment?

    Is it 5mg (ie 5.0mg) or .5mg (ie 0.5mg)? If 5mg then this is a higher dose than 1.25mg. If .5mg then it is a lower dose than 1.25mg
