    Usually I find when I drink alcohol and take my antidepressant it has basically no effect, possibly due to alcohol being a depressant anyway..

    Its not that you shouldn't, I'm unsure if it has the same effects on the seretonin receptors.

    I normally drink with Mirtazapine ... maybe a slightly longer hangover ...

    I did on holiday but half loads. Honestly wasn't a good experience for me.

    I wouldn't again.

    Yeah you can. I used to drink a lot whilst on mirtazapine. Might make you a LITTLE more drunk than usual, but no problem!
