I'm feeling more anxious, down, and tired. This is my 5th day taking the med. I probably won't stop drinking so is there anything else I can take for my depression? I already take Xanax for sleep issues.
It is contraindicated to drink alcohol with any of the antidepressants. Alcohol is a depressant, so you are adding to your symptoms of depression. If you truly want to get better best to cut down or stop the drinking.
Hope you figure out how to take care of yourself.
