Alcohol can increase certain side effects of Levitra.
It made your husband experience most of the common side effects of the medication.
Take him to the ER or call 911. This is new to me too, and would recommend safety overall... better safe than sorry.-This is my personal opinion.-

All the best,
Did you mean Levitra? If so these are some common feelings some people have when they take Levitra or the drugs in that same classification because of mode of action in the body. Levitra acts as a vasodilator, meaning it increases the blood flow. When there is a sudden increase in blood flow/blood pressure it can cause headaches, hot flashes and the alcohol could have increases these symptoms and more than likely caused the upset stomach. He should call the doctor’s office tomorrow or at least before taking anymore and let the doctor know about how he felt after taking the pill. Also tell him again that he drank a beer and how close he drank it to taking the pill. He may want to change to a different medicine or he may say these symptoms will go away after a few doses. At any rate, if these symptoms get any worse tonight he may need to see the doctor tonight. You can never be too careful when taking a medication for the first time. I hope I have been of some help.
