I'm sure you'll get some good answers about the relationship between wine and hypertension, but those are general, not personal. You need an answer specific to you; ask your doctor or another medical professional familiar with your health whether wine is safe for you. (I assume this question is personal, that you or someone you know has hypertension.)

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
