- atenolol, wine, medication
I just started it about 3 weeks ago. I take my bp just before I take my 1/2 pill of 25mg and it's usually in the mid to high 130s/80s, but if I take it within 30 min. my rate is back down to the 120s/70-80s. I would like to enjoy a glass of wine, but am concerned about "feeling wierd" or getting sick.

Avoid drinking alcohol, which could increase drowsiness and dizziness while you are taking atenolol.
All the best,

I too take high BP meds & a glass of wine or a pint of beer, as long as you restrict an occasional glass of wine or maybe a pint of beer, you should be fine.
Take care, best wishes!
