I know advice varies from one medical advisor to another (and tolerance level from one user to another), but what's the typical rule of thumb with antidepressants and alcohol?
I went back on Citalopram recently, the first 2 days felt good......on Day 3 had about 3 pints of beer, 2 gin and tonics and then another bottle of beer to round off the night, and I remember my mood being in a funk after that (because of things that happened in the club that night), but also recalling that I reacted slightly more calmly to the situation because I was on antidepressant's. The next morning I woke up still feeling drunk, and the rest of the day I had slight anxiety.
Morning of Day 5 I feel slightly better (maybe because the alcohol is leaving the system?), but I've decided that for the near future at least to avoid drinking more than 2 units of alcohol.
Is it fine to cut down? Or are we generally told to abstain altogether until we start feeling completely better? I'm told alcohol and antidepressants actually send mixed messages to the brain?
