1. Penbutolol, a new, centrally-active (-blocking agent has been studied for its interaction with alcohol.
2. Alcohol (75(proof whisky) as 0.8 mg/kg was administered with 20 mg. penbutolol or placebo in double-blind crossover to 6 volunteers.
3. Psychomotor tests of performance did not reveal any significant penbutolol-alcohol interaction.
