Lisinopril, Coreg, Light Beer

Hi, my new Beta Blocker arrived today—Coreg.  I am on a 25mg dose twice a day.  My routine used to be this:  Wake up, take the Lisinopril around 7am, go to work, come home have a few drinks from 5pm-7pm then take my 10mg tablet of Bystolic.  What I am trying to figure out is when to take all these pills without if affecting my ritualistic light beer unwinding time.  I don’t know much about Coreg but the Bystolic obviously didn’t kill me when I mixed it with the booze.  Now that I am taking Coreg, should I take the Lisinopril at the same time, 1st Coreg in the afternoon, then the second one at bedtime as I did with the Bystolic?  Or is Coreg more likely to have negative reaction when mixed with the nectar of life?  Decisions……

Hi, to begin with there are no known interactions between Coreg and Lisinopril, so you can take them together.  A twice daily dosage is best taken 12 hrs apart. If you are taking the extended release Coreg CR, avoid drinking alcohol within 2 hours before or after taking extended-release carvedilol (Coreg CR). Alcohol may cause the carvedilol in Coreg CR to be released too quickly into the body.  So, while taking Coreg, its best to avoid alcohol 2 hrs before and 2 hrs after taking the medication.  Regards.
