<--- NOT a medical professional! lol

I'm on Zoloft and from how I understand it (from my psychiatrist MIL and nurse friends) that the problem with drinking while on these medications lays in two place.

1) The liver, where they are metabolized. You can do some serious damage with alcohol alone, but then when you mix it with drugs that can do damage by themselves, you have a serious issue.

2) Alcohol increases the potency of the medications. So, I take 50 mg of Zoloft. If I binge drink, I could feel as if I doubled or even tripled my dose - leading a major come down from the effect. It can make you ever more depressed.
