View Full Version : Seroxat and Alcohol

15-05-08, 20:58
What are peoples opinions on drinking while taking anti-depressents? On my seroxat it says avoid alcohol, but does that really mean i can never have the odd glass of wine with friends occassionally? Im on a high dose 60mg. Has anyone else drank on this? :shrug:

What might it do to me? :unsure:

Any ideas?

Hi Popsy:D

I used to take seroxat and from my understanding if you drink with it then it dosent work as well(but Im not a doctor!!!!)

Why not ring the pharmacist at your local chemist and ask them:)

Hi Popsy,

I'm on 30mg and I find that I'm ok if I have a couple of drinks but if I overdo it the next day is horrible...... hangover, shaking and terrible panic attacks.

Take it easy and see how you go :)
