... and violence. This is particularly bad when I have drunk alcohol. I always used to drink when socialising, but since being on Fluoxetine when I drink, I seem to get extremely intoxicated very quickly too. I was wondering if anyone had experienced anything like this and wether alcohol is to be avoided all together whilst taking Fluoxetine?
You should not use alcohol while taking Fluoxetine because it will intensify the effects of the alcohol. Aggression is a side effect of Fluoxetine. I would personally talk to your doctor about changing medications because Aggression is a rare side effect and isn't worth it. I would ask about trying a newer Antidepressant such as Effexor Xr or something else. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
