Depends on how much you drink, and your other medical conditions, medications, etc. Red wine is good for the heart and cardiovascular system, but too much or interaction with medication can cause many problems.

I began taking lisinopril today for high blood pressure that was diagnosed today. I have been told that drinking a glass of red wine can be beneficial. Can one drink a glass of red wine while taking this medication? Also, I was told to eat more vegetables and fruits, but have read that I should stay away from beans and bananas and other foods that are rich in potassium.

I feel like i have a fish flopping around in my chest. Does this sound like a heart problem and if so, what? could it be? I m calling the doctor but until I talk to them tomorrow, I d like some feedback here. thanks in advance for your kind, helpful answers. also, this has been going on for a bit now, and is not getting better but is not getting worse, either. I drink quite a bit of red wine and coffee. Could those two be culprits ? lioness {{hugs}} thanks dear one

Hi! My name is Samantha and I am 30 years old and have been on 20 mg of adderall xr (generic) for 3 months and it has been going great. I am a big red wine drinker, is it ok to drink wine on it? I have a bit of anxiety and have convinced myself that I am going to have a heart attack although i have no cardiovascular problems in my history or family.
