Best meds for hypertension and gout in an alcoholic

Just wanted to know if losartan(Cozaar) is the best option for an alcoholic with gout and high blood pressure?
Of course, the best scenario would be to completely delete alcohol out of the equation, but it is not an option at this time for the person involved.

hi Cs,

Have you or your friend been completely honest with your doctor and told him about the alcoholism? Meds interact with alcohol! He needs to know.

The comment about the best Medicine "sobriety" is the real answer. ......and if you or your friend are going to wait for a convenient time to quit drinking you could DIE waiting.
