Been on Mirtazapine for several months and starting to feel better, well most days. Hád a bit of a wobble during week. But I went out with my friend last night and we had a bottle of wine each and I feel so bad today. Do you think it's the wine that caused it.   anybody advise me on this one.

    Alcohol is a depressant so yes, the next day you may be a little more anxious. I know people who don't suffer from anxiety and they feel it the day after.

    YES!

    This happened to me after drinking alcohol whilst on mirtazapine. I forgot I shouldn't drink and just went out for dinner and had two drinks.

    My face went bright red and I could barely walk. My husband had to help me back to our hotel.

    Conclusion - no alcohol while on mirtazapine.

    I'm on mitrazepine and you shouldn't drink on it ! It's highly likely that that is the cause of you feeling so bad today

    got this on google

    "Alcohol can increase the nervous system side effects of mirtazapine such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use ofalcohol while being treated with mirtazapine."

    Maybe a glass on a full stomach, but a whole bottle might be a bit much. Maybe you could drink a couple big glasses of water and see if it helps to flush some of the toxicity out of your system. 

    hope you feel better soon!
