An occasional beer or glass of wine won't be of much harm, but carefully monitor drinking - it is never ever a good idea to drink even moderately on the anti-depressants. Wellbutrin reduces the seizure threshold, and if you drink, you are putting yourself at greater risk for seizures. I have found that my alcohol tolerance has been reduced, so I have to watch and drink less. I definitely stay away from any drinks that have tequila, including margaritas, because I notice that tequila has the worst effect on my mood the next day.
Shots are absolutely out of the question. If I drink liquor, I only have 1-2 mixed drinks. I took a shot of patron and absolutely regretted it. It slowed me down terribly the next day to the point that my gait was visibly slower, and my mood was thrown off for about 4-5 days afterward.
So moral of the story - keep your drinking to a minimum.
