Lisinopril and Alcohol?
I recently started taking Lisinopril for moderately high blood pressure. 5mg daily.

These last few days I have attended social events where alcohol was present. After 2-3 beers I found myself feeling light headed and dizzy. Due to this side effect I don’t plan to drink any more on this medication.

However is there a chance I could have done any permanant damage by drinking and taking lisinopril?

Of all people you picked Chuck Norris to be your alias. Oh, how could you? Hes a good guy. Anyways, Cardinal Rule.. You don’t mix prescriptions with Alcohol PERIOD! That is not a safe thing to do at all. If your not careful, because your an Older Individual you could spike your blood pressure and cause an induced Cardiac Arrhythmia or a on set of a Heart Attack. Stop Drinking with drugs… Or really bad things could happen ! =(

It is not advisable to drink alcohol while on lisinopril as it further lower your blood pressure and may increase some of the side effects of lisinopril.

As for long-term effects on taking alcohol with this medication, there was no report yet, however you don’t know what the long-term effects would be, avoid combining both as much as possible.
