Dear Worried
When taking simvastatin, alcohol can raise triglyceride levels, and may also damage your liver.
Use alcohol cautiously when taking Norvasc as alcohol may further lower blood pressure and increase drowsiness or dizziness while taking Norvasc.
Zestoretic may increase the effects of alchohol and alcohol can increase the side effects of Zestoretic.
