What is the effect of wine on High BP?

I like a glass of wine in the evening. My doctor said, "Don't drink." Pharmacist says 4 hrs before BP meds OK
I have high blood pressure--really good and low with meds, a.m. and p.m. I don't have more than the one small glass of wine and have had no repercussions that I know of. My daughter says that it's the damage on the liver--and that it's said not to drink when taking Tylonol, too. That they interact. Any information on what actually happens internally?

Did you ask you doctor why you can't drink? Simply saying BP meds is not enough information. Consider thie following: If my son is dating a 'female' it could be a bright-faced teenager or a 40 year old cocktail waitress in a 'Dolly Parton' wig. After all both are females. So what medicines are you on....what are the doses......and how often are you taking them? Have you already had some liver damage? Are your liver enzymes elevated? Alcohol and Tylenol do not mix very well. Yes, yes, I know that the combine them in Nyquil, but it ain't good for you. You can get liver damage with either, but when combined the amounts of each needed to cause damage is even less. Consider just plain purple grape juice instead of wine for now, until you can give more information so you can get better advice. It has the many of the same chemicals that are credited with the healthy benefits.

Hi, i have high blood pressure since 3 months back with an average of 14.5/9.5 (Sometimes reaching 16/11). i started taking Amlor 5 mg twice per day however it didnt give full stability of BP in addition to the severe side effects. i shifted to Concor 2.5 mg then concor 5 mg once per day without getting a 100% stability for my BP eventhough my BP got reduced. Now, i moved to 1 pill of concor 5 mg morning and 1 pill of Amlor 5 mg evenning starting 7 days back where my BP become fully stabilized with an average of 12/8. Please advise if it is accetpable to take this dosage of BP medicine and if there are any inconvenience in taking AMlor + concor 5 mg on medium and long term and if this combination is considered to be a long term solution for my BP... thank you in advance.

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?
