Can you not drink at all or does it mean excessively. I go out once a week and I have a Christmas Party coming up next month and the Doctor has put me on these today.

The interaction between celexa and alcohol differs between users. Most people feel a little bit more sleepier than usual but its nothing huge. The best thing to do is to take it slow so you can know how it affects you first. Don't take more than 1-2 drinks so you don't end up falling asleep in your party.
Hi, Maxine: I used to tell my doc "do not give me any meds that I can not drink with, because I am going to continue to drink". Yes, you can drink. This is the real world. Just try to do so "in moderation".
Don't let anyone make you feel guilty for taking a drink or a beer while you are taking meds. That is not realistic!
I am on several controlled substances on my list of medications. I'm completely honest with my doctor about everything. For one -I don't want to accidentally die! He said it's not like you're going to die, but it's probably not a good idea. I like to have a glass of wine now and then. My only warning would be to tell you that it takes a lot less alcohol than it did before you were on meds to give you a buzz. You will feel it a lot faster.
