I'm a college student who recently started taking Effexor and going out and drinking is a huge part in my social life. I know that it says don't drink while taking Effexor but I was wondering if there are actual detrimental effects. Can anyone who has taken Effexor while in college relate to what I'm dealing with? I'm a kid so completely cutting off my social life isn't really an option when normally I used to go out 2 or 3 times a week.
