I've just started, and while I'm only a social drinker maybe once a month, I've heard it can have really bad side effects. I would just like to drink a glass of wine every once and awhile.
Its never a good idea to mix alcohol with medications that effect your brain. It can have an additive effect to the medication, causing central nervous system depression. Chances are one glass of wine wouldn't hurt, but its just that, a chance.
I have been taking Pristiq for a couple years and have not had any problems with a glass of wine now and then. Granted, alcohol in quantity can increase side effects and is a natural depressant, but drinking responsibly has not caused me any harm.
