I think you should ask your doctor to be on the safe side. I take metoprolol and my doctor said it`s ok to have one or two drinks but not to over do it. Be careful when I mix the two I get very tired.
I would listen to my body...for some people alcohol can set off PVC's but you may be one of the people who it doesn't effect.......drugs and alcohol as a rule don't mix but i agree i would talk to the doc that gave you the meds to get their thoughts on this.....in moderation most people are pretty safe tho.....i just wouldn't over do it......
Thanks for the comments.
I never had problems with PVC's in the past and used to drink quite a bit of caffeine. Just so happens that the day the PVC's started (out of the blue) I had had quite a bit of caffeine and 4 or so drinks. Since then, 11/1/09, I haven't had a drop of alcohol or caffeine and the PVC's kept coming back until I started on the metoprolol.
I have a check up with the doctor next week and I'm going to see what his thoughts are. On my last visit he told me to stay away from it, but I think that was more just to see how I react to the meds and rule out any possible causes.
