I'm taking daily dose 20 MG of Citalopram before bed time, I would like to know if there are any side effects with occasionally (once or twice a month) drinking alcoholic beverages?
Hi, i have to refer you to the interaction report between Citalopram and alcohol, please click on the link: https://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=679-0,1034-14582
However, i think you would be pretty safe having a drink or 2 a couple of times a month... I have been taking Citalopram for several years and have had a drink whilst taking it and had no adverse effects. I do take my Citalopram in the morning though, so this could make a difference??
