I'm going on either one of these medications soon (my doctor and I are seeing which is going to work better for me) and I'm going to be going to college soon and will be drinking and I wanted to know how these medications react with alcohol?
Hi, mixing alcohol with antidepressants will prevent them from working properly & make your depression worse. Also, mixing Prozac with alcohol can increase nervous system side effects, such as dizziness, drowsiness & difficulty concentrating, and mixing Wellbutrin with alcohol could actually cause seizures
I've been on Wellbutrin for 2 years and did not quit drinking. I drink in moderation because I enjoy wine. I don't drink in excess, which is dangerous even without antidepressants, even more so with.
Drinking in excess or suddenly stopping drinking can cause seizers with Wellbutrin.
Also when I started Wellbutrin I asked my doctor about alcohol. He said 1-2 drinks was OK a few days a week, which was my norm.
