... ile back, so I called my pharmacist.

Also, it can intensify the sleepiness effect that occurs with SSRI's. ... (11 replies)

... These are not true statements for everyone. I personally had no problem quitting alcohol and Benzo's do not have the same tolerance building problem that alcohol does.

... To me it's like giving a blind person a hearing aid! Sure i can say that the SSRI's have helped a little bit, but not enough to justify them worrying about me getting addicted... Better addicted to A Dr prescibed med than wallowing in alcohol... (33 replies)

... I spoke to my GP about it & he said to try & keep it to a 6 pack a week. I try my best...lol. I feel my best after a couple of drinks. I can see why some people abuse alcohol. After a couple of drinks I feel calm & confident. Which is a nice feeling after a day filled with anxiety. (11 replies)
... thank you very much for all your advice unfortunately I haven't been to my dr's because they are not very nice (I will be changing them soon) I've decided to stick to non alcoholic beers because I'm not bothered really about alcohol I just like to be with friends :) and that's a very good thought on the tablets I'll start taking mine more towards the evening see how it plays...

... I, like you, am on a SSRI (Luvox) for OCD. I would imagine you are on a fairly high dose, as you are usually put on a higher dose for OCD. If you decide to drink, I would keep it at one to two drinks. Yeah, it might kind of stink (trust me, I love a good beer with my football), but it's the card we were dealt. I would rather stick to a beer or two every once in a while, than... (2 replies)
... e. If you take too much of one or the other in combo it seems to make a bad hangover, but one xanax and a few drinks shouldn't hurt. I don't think the Paxil with alcohol will hurt either. ... (10 replies)

In fact, Zoloft for me was a very key medication because it really did the trick to get me less depressed and anxious all the time. I went off Zoloft after taking... (26 replies)

... It's not really good to mix the stuff since they are both Central Nervous System depressants. You don't want to be slowed down too much. Are you taking Klonopin every day? I mean, does your doctor have you on a regimine? Typically it's best to take those meds on an "as needed" basis... you know, when you actually HAVE a panic attack. Your doctor probably gave them to you... (8 replies)

... but I do not ever consider raising the dosage. I take this amount because it was the lowest dosage that would stabilize me enough to function after going off an ssri to fast on a Doctors request. I knew little about these meds at the time so I fell into a real learning lesson which disabled me. ... (6 replies)
