You should limit the amount of alcohol you drink while you are taking torsemide. Torsemide can cause dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting, especially when you stand up quickly from a lying or sitting position. Drinking alcohol can make these side effects worse. The risk of these side effects is increased even more if you exercise or if you are outside on a hot day.
