    If you have a heart murmur can you drink alcohol? Can you get drunk if you have a hurt murmur?

    I have a mild case of pulmonary stenosis and I'm wondering if I can ever drink and have a little fun? Or is it dangerous?

    Ummmm.....ask your doctor. The LPA is not a place to go for medical advice.


    I also have a heart murmor that according to my doctor is vey mild and no big deal, and he's never told me not to drink. And I do drink occasionally and I'm not dead. That said, ask your doctor. Everyone's case is different and NO ONE here is an expert and can give you a correct answer

    I get drunk with my friends every weekend and I'm fine with my heart murmur.
