Drinking while being on medication?

I'm curious to know what are the damaging effects of drinking on perscribed medication such as anti depressants like zoloft or prozac. ? Or perhaps the class of benzos, besides the idea of blacking out....?

I've been drinking a hell lot while being on perscribed medication primarily prozac not so much with benzos...

Re: Drinking while being on medication?

There are several reasons but the main thing is liver damage!

Just do a search on it as I can't post any sites..it is against Healthboards policy.

Re: Drinking while being on medication?

Don't drink on physc drugs, for 1 drinking on anti depressants is much of a contradiction. Alcohol is an depressant, then there's the benzo's, you drink on those, you can very well overdose.
