Although alcohol raises blood pressure, don't go overboard with the alcohol. 1-2 beers over a 1 hour period will not affect you. I'm on a load of meds (including BP meds) and my doctor said it's ok to have one or two. But peoples immune systems vary with mixtures. Talk to your gp. Just stay away from hard alcohol.

It is not a good idea to drink while on high blood pressure medication. Alcohol can raise a person's blood pressure which would be counterproductive in this situation.

Very dangerous to drink while on medication. Can be fatal.
