Citalopram and alcohol have similar effects on the chemicals in the brain. This means that the symptoms of depression can be intensified. Alcohol should only be used in moderation while taking this medication. It is recommended that if you do drink in moderation that you wait to see how citalopram affects your body. Do not operate a car or heavy machinery until effects are known. Hope this helps. Good luck!
