As advised by Mrs. Page please avoid alcohol with Seroquel, however this has been reported:
"Drinking alcohol may increase your risk of certain side effects of Seroquel, such as drowsiness or low blood pressure (when sitting or standing up). One may also be more sensitive to the effects of alcohol if one has been taking the drug. Also, one may not be able to safely drink as much alcohol as one is used to drinking in the past. Seroquel is approved to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It is typically best for people with these mental illnesses to avoid alcohol, as it may worsen mental illness and is often a form of "self-medication."
