I Learned The Hard Way.... Again

I'm 34, 5' 11" 150 male. Currently on 100 MGS of Atenolol, 5/20 of Lotrel & 2 MGS of Xanax. 21 months ago I had a panic attack, because I had a 4 day drinking binge. I stopped drinking during the week & limit myself to 2 on the weekends. My G/F won't stand for it.

I went out with my friend on Saturday. Drank 5 1/2 beers & 2 shots of tequilla. Bad Bad Bad Idea. I woke up at 6 A.M. My heart was racing, my stomach was killing me+. On B/P meds. & anxiety meds, please don't drink more than a couple per week. Yesterday was miserable for me. I can't hang out with this friend even for a few hours. I will limit myself to 2 on the weekends & that is it. I learned my lesson again the hard way. No one is perfect, but meds. make it worse & it is a really bad idea anyway. Please take my advice. Yesterday was no picnic.

Today my B/P is at 116/72. Not great. Not bad, but my average has been from 110-116 over 64-72 on the meds.

Drinking & the meds. don't mix.
