I have high blood pressure. I usually get drunk every weekend, but now that I'm on blood pressure meds I'm scared to drink. I wanna get drunk tonight, but I take my pills at bedtime. What should I do? I'm 19 btw. Not really at the stroke-prone age yet.

Is it worth it? Why don't you not "get drunk" and just have a drink? I don't think alcohol and high Bp mix. My husband is on Bp meds and when he "over does it" his heart races and he feels funny the next day. I would suggest to play it safe

I would say it wouldn't be very smart to drink.

All you need to do is call your pharmacy and ask the pharmacist if it is okay to drink alcohol while on the medication. Usually if you shouldn't it will be printed on the prescription bottle.

I knew a gal that was fit and drank way to much and had a stroke. You don't think of anyone that is a healthy weight, exercises, and doesn't smoke, having a stroke from drinking too much.

My husband's drinking increases MY blood pressure.

You're 19, have blood pressure, and want to get wasted again this weekend. Yeah, sounds like just the start of a life of bad decisions.

Wouldn't you like, to, I don't know, be healthy enough when you actually hit 21 to be able to enjoy a drink in an actual bar?

Isn't it illegal for you to drink. Must be a born rebel. Maybe you should drink and remove yourself from society because you are obviously not a productive member at all.

Drinking when you on hypertension medication can increase your blood pressure according to http://www.bloodpressuremagazine.com/what-is-...

Alcohol abuse can lead to high blood pressure, so limit your daily alcohol intake.
