Hey LC2,

Alcohol is a depressant, so if you are taking the Paxil as an antidepressant than you may want to consider cutting back on your alcohol consumption. Also, alcohol will intensify any side effects you may experienc when you first start Paxil. The side effects generally subside within the first couple of weeks. An occasional drink is nothing to be concerned over, but if you have the tendency to overdo, then back off the booze.
