There are several classes of BP meds and within each class there are several varieties.

All have different different side effects and different reaction with other meds, food, and alcohol. So it is impossible to answer your question.

Your pharmacist, who knows exactly what you are taking, would be a better one to ask.

True, and in addition, if alcohol is OK, you'll probably have to cut back (or cut out) the salt on the rim. Yes, the taste is different, but you'll get used to it. Also, malignant hypertension is kind of an animal unto itself; that may make a difference, too.
