Alcohol will not affect the medicine from working so the warning you have read is general and aimed to help manage your angina.
Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol will increase your risk of developing angina.
Excessive drinking is defined as regularly exceeding the recommended daily allowance of three to four units of alcohol a day for men and two to three units a day for women.
A unit of alcohol is approximately half a pint of normal strength lager, a small glass of wine or a single measure (25ml) of spirits.
Regularly exceeding the recommended alcohol limits will raise your blood pressure and your cholesterol level, both of which are risk factors for angina.
