I had the absolute worst experience this past friday... I thought maybe someone slipped something in my drink (which is still very possible) but I am also wondering how I lost over half the night.... I obviously had a few more drinks that I should've but I dont drink where i black out... and now I have two or three occasions where I dont remember over half the night... I've done some really horrible things during these 'lost hours'. I can't undo what happened. I dont even remember doing anything - and what was done is so out of character for me. If anyone has any insight on the actual effects of welbutrin & prozac with alcohol, please tell me i'm not alone...:(

You are not alone. I am on two meds.(one anti-depressant) I am not suppose to drink much alcohol with, and, I forgot to eat dinner! I drank waaaay too much and don't barely remember half the night. I embarrassed myself awful. These things are definitly out of character for me. My neighbors know me as having a very clean reputation. This one night I can barely, hazily remember, has left this an emotional, spiritual and physical scar on me. Plus a rather a big bruise on my face because I fell on it. (My left eye looks like I got punched. I bumped my head hard, I think, on the neighbors house, or stairs, waiting for catscan results) One of the meds I think I can go without, I think lowers my inibitions and weakens my resolves to begin with???? I am working on getting off of.
Alcohol is a double edge sword. It can really hurt. It only heals in very small amounts. You are not alone. I hope we don't repeat these type of nights. I wish someone had been there to tell me to slow down or sit down or "hey, we are all going home now, you too" But I guess the people I was with, was just as messed up too.? I shouldn't have even been there to begin with.It was all my own fault. No one elses. Not even my meds fault. We all make mistakes. But we just need to move on and try not to make them again? You are not alone.
Your post really helped me. I am reminded to examine my own behavior and see how I can make adjustments. Thank you so much for posting. Be Safe.

[QUOTE=WhenItRains;4896603]Alcohol should be avoided at all costs on Prozac and other Antidepressants...
If you choose to drink while on it,try to drink only small amounts.
The Prozac and the Wellbutrin will BOTH intensify the effect of the alcohol.
One drink is going to be more like 3 drinks....[/QUOTE]


I was on Cymbalta for a month and a half....
It was suppose to be for chronic pain?
While I was waiting for it to work...it gave me insomnia and headaches
both which some wine seemed to help
The mistakes I made was adding more than wine to the mix (liquor)
that one night I wrote about....(in this thread)

After that night....I realized I was trying to overcome side effects of a med I didn't want or need....it didn't work for my chronic pain....it gave me more problems after all

Now, I am still on Topamax and have a couple glasses of wine once a month...
It's barely enjoyable...useless to go beyond that. It's not worth feeling so awful.
