Hi, I've just come off fluoxetine about 4 days ago and my friends are going to a party tonight... I was just wondering whether it would be okay to get a bit tipsy? Will it be safe?
Fluoxetine has a 4 to 6 day half life, in other words, in 4 to 6 days half of the drug is still in your body. It would also depend on the dosage. Be safe and give it a couple of weeks to rid your body completely. There could also be some withdrawals if you stopped cold. Go out and drink soda, water or virgin drinks. Best to be safe, alcohol is never indicated in someone with depression. Take care and keep chatting.
