Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum

If your husband has no other symptoms like giddiness, sweating, flushing of face or loss of conscious , but only palpitations , then it is fine, but try to measure his pulse rate, if less than 100 nothing to worry ,generally alcohol causes some changes in the heart and sympathetic system .

Make sure he has had food or something to drink , do not keep him unfed,if there is any other symptoms , take him to a doctor if needed.

Motivate him to quit this habit.
