My husband was prescribed amlodipine besylate for high blood pressure he drinks a 6 pk almost everyday should he be doing that? I am afraid something further will happen if he continues to do so
missy; There really is not a major interaction between the two, but it is never a good idea to mix medication close to alcohol when is he taking the high blood pressure medication compared to the beer. a few beers is not as bad, but a six pack every night is really pushing it for his general health anyway. This would worry me a bit more than the 2 together. Starts a 6 pack then turns into a short case. Men many times this is their way of self-medicating and he should be honest with the doctor about how much beer he is drinking each night. Lots of times this is how we cover up other problems.stress, anxiety but some just enjoy a few beers after work it could be much worse. Put's you in a hard place but don't need to raise his blood pressure any higher he is going to do what he is going to do. This is more common than you think and not alot you can do about it without more problems. You can always ask the Pharmacist when your filling the prescription and get their intake on it.
