Paxil can increase the effects of the alcohol. You'll feel like you're getting intoxicated more quickly.

Re: Paxil And Drinking

Hi,
I took Paxil for about 1 year, and was able to drink alcohol without any problems. For me, it didn't increase the effects of alcholol, but I have heard that for some people, it can.

I would say to test the waters carefully....
Good luck to you!
