What happens if I drink alcohol ocassionally and taking pristiq?
20 Jul 2011
While drinking alcoholic beverages while taking any antidpressant such as Pristiq is not a great idea because alcohol is a depressant in itself, an occassional drink isn't going to hurt. I take Pristiq and every once in awhile have had a drink such as on special occassions. As long as you drink responsibly and not overdo, you'll be fine. If you have the tendency to drink to excess, then I would stay away from the alcohol, like I said it is a natural depressant.
