Prozac and alcohol

Ive been taking 20mg Prozac a day at approx 12 noon for 8 mths.

Im happy with it, but if i have just one glass yes ONE glass of sparkling or flat wine, i feel quite drowsy and drunk. I can usually sink a whole bottle (pre Prozac) !! but since ive started taking it i cant tolerate even a small amount of booze.

I know im not supposed to mix the two but my Doc said the odd glass of wine or 3 wont hurt. But it scares me as i feel i couldnt function correctly even with the smallest of amounts.

Anyone have any input on this please?

Re: Prozac and alcohol

Same thing happened to me. With all SSRIs that I have been on. If I want a glass of wine - I know it is going to be ONe glass of wine.

I have been putting ice in my glass and it has helped a little bit.
