welcome to HealthcareMagic
No you should not drink alcohol with Toprol xl.Toprol-xl is metoprolol and is a beta blocker used to treat hypertension and even in cases of migraine.Your BP as of now is fine but alcohol can act as a heart and brain stimulant and is better not used along with medicines of hypertension.There is no exact drug interaction with alcohol but better to avoid it.
