Alcohol used to make me sleepy while taking them, although it didn't stop me having any. It effects people in different ways.

To be perfectly honest, NO. Up to you but it can send you manic and out of control. Personal experience.
Good luck.
I was on them for years and they ruined my life.
Much better on Prozac.
Hope it helps.

Hi, eveyyantha!
The big debate question!!! Some people do fine with a drink or two occasionally, and others have very serious and dangerous reactions.
Remember too that you're taking an antidepressant and alcohol is a depressant drug.
If you're planning to, I'd suggest you talk to your doctor but if you do decide to drink try it first in a safe environment in case you react badly.
