    Antidepressants and alcohol

    Has anyone felt that after they started taking Antidepressants, they started to CRAVE alcohol? I first started Zoloft 2 years ago and started having tremendous CRAVINGS to drink alcohol (I read that can happen in like 1% of people). When I went off it, it went away. I then went on others (lexapro, wellbutrin and now Prozac) and my alcohol cravings have gotten worse.

    Anyone else experience this?

    Hmm? I don't know if I would call it a craving, but I look forward to having a glass of wine in the evenings. I've never heard of that. Too much alcohol and antidepressants don't mix from what I understand.
