I recent started to take Lisinopril for my blood pressure. I tend to go out with friends on weekends to have cocktails. Is there anywhere that states that taking lisinopril and alcohol at the same time can do damage or give major side effects? I do not drink alcohol at home. I am just a social drinker.
This question has also been asked and answered here: Can you drink alcohol while taking Lisinopril?
