He has a history of back problems, from blown discs, leaking spinal fluid, then had a very serious car accident, that broke his hip and burst his spleen, he had been put on many types of pain medications and has bad addictions now. He really seem to want to die after the prozac was prescribed, but never knew what was causing the behavior problems until he was incarcerated for forgery of a prescription, after going to the ER in pain, he had taking his daily prozac and had some beer, the Doctor gave him a prescription of 4 hydrocodone 5.500 he attempted to change the amount, something he would never have done had he been in his right mind, he didn't even remember the incident until he woke up in jail. I need to know anything anyone can tell me about the effects of prozac and alcohol, or even just the effects of prozac and suicidal thoughts, as he was doing many things to cause death even prior to this event, and not remembering it.
Hiya sounds like a very scary time for you both. In my experience Prozac and alcohol together is lethal, the more you drink the more you want and there seems no end untill something bad happens. With me my personality changes drastically when drinking on prozac. It's not for everyone but prozac has helped me a lot as long as i dont drink, as i end up feeling 10 times more depressed the next day on topof everything else. Maybe he needs to change meds have heard a lot about prozac having averse effects without alcohol.
