Red face drinking on depression meds

Hi there
i have a family member thats taking depression medication. I dont know what pill exactly but he is a drinker and has been really acting out of control these past 2 weeks. No one knows what to do in my family....this is a grown man. He cries he falls he bleeds all over (blood thinners) hes making sexual advances..... its crazy!
what can i do????????
hes always drank but im thinking the meds are intensifing the alcohol.
Has anyone dealt with this before??? Am I on the right board???

Re: drinking on depression meds

the antidepressants act like a multiplier where one beer feels like three. Bad idea to mix the two as it tends to make the mental illness much worse
