Drinking too much can cause your blood pressure to rise, so make sure to drink moderately – stick to a max of 1 drink a day for women or 2 drinks a day for men.

Alcohol can make you dizzy, lightheaded, and dehydrated. ACE inhibitors can also make you feel dizzy or lightheaded, especially when you first start taking them or if you increase your dose. Drinking alcohol and taking an ACE inhibitor at the same time can make these symptoms worse, so be careful.

Remember: drink in moderation and be careful when drinking while taking an ACE inhibitor.

The truth about booze is – your blood pressure loses!
