Alcohol, sleeping tablets and Valium are all depressants right? When I first went down with this bought of depression I was drinking like a fish as my depression and anxiety were unbearable.
I have improved since then and have not had any alcohol in 7 weeks.
I may soon have to start using sleeping tablets as I am coming off remeron (which helps me sleep)
onto Effexor. I was told that while I was drinking my anti-depressants would not work so well as alcohol is a depressant. How come we can take sleeping tablets and valium (which I am not taking) when they are also depressants?... or should we not be taking the sleeping tablets. Any info appreciated. Thanks.
