Re: Alcohol & Psych Meds
I take all sorts of psych meds, and I've been known to enjoy a little Vodka now and then. I can't tell you if the pills and booze intensify each other because I didn't drink much before I began taking pills. But I do know this: Sometimes I feel terribly depressed and alcohol helps. It's like taking an aspirin for a headache. The bad thoughts go away when I'm drinking. However, I usually end up doing or saying something that I horribly regret. The next day (or whenever) I usually feel 10x depressed. I don't know if that's the alcohol working it's way through my system, or just guilt from drinking. So my advice? Drinking is great for temporarily easing depression, but you may regret it later.
