I don't have any dependency issues with alcohol but do enjoy a beer or two with supper. Is it okay to take drink while taking Trentillex?
Having a beer now and then probably won't hurt, but keep in mind that alcohol is a depressant which means it is countering the Brintellix. You may find you prefer to not drink every day.
Hi, the drug interactions checker says this: "Using vortioxetine together with ethanol can increase nervous system side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with vortioxetine".
So try to avoid alcohol as much as possible, however one beer every now and then should be ok...
Hi I'm having the same issue! I want to drink as well as take the medicine . Have you tried yet?
