    Its not dangerous as such, I used to get bladdered on it at times, but I would suffer the next day. No medication really works well with alcohol especially anti depressants.

    Sertraline is quite strong and will enhance the effects of the alcohol, you won't feel it at the time but it will cause effects that last a few days.

    Hope this helps!!

      Hi Brent,

      I've been off sertraline for about a month now.

      It gave me my life back I was on it for about 7 months but it really helped me to gain control of my reality which had been blurred somewhat, the withdrawal is quite fierce but worth it.

      It reduced my anxiety and I could work on it which helped me keep my job.

      Keep strong!!! 

      You are so not alone.

    Hiya Brent.....Drinking isn't a good idea on this medication.Try to stay off the booze and eat nourishing foods.Hopefully you will feel better soon.

    Hi Brent,

    There is no known interaction between alcohol and sertraline. I've been on sertraline for 2 years now and drink regularly. I've never noticed any effects during or after drinking.

    I'm not saying that will be the case for everyone because we may all react differently to these things. It might be that you just had a hangover the day after drinking.

    If your genuinley worried go and see your GP.
