While is recommended to avoid alcohol with both of these drugs, combining the two in moderate dosages shouldn't be harmful. Usually, these drugs increase the "buzz-feeling" effects of alcohol, so you may feel more intoxicated more quickly.

But, like I said, moderation shouldn't be harmful, but there's no harm in checking with your doctor.
If you are being treated for depression, the zoloft needs to be taken on a daily basis to really be effective.I think he might have ment that you can take the clo****pam as needed.the clo****pam is a benzodiazipine and is not recommended to take and then consume alcohol.if you have already consumed alcohol or are planning on it shortly after taking this med, I would think twice as alcohol will give added sedative action to the alcohol or vice versa.i am sure if you looked up the Rxing info, it would tell you basically the same thing.FB
