Old habits die hard. Also the effects of mixing alcohol and anti-depressants are not specified very well. I saw on the Paxil website that mixing alcohol and paxil could cause drowsiness and potentiation of the alcohol effects. I didn't see anything about blackouts or memory loss.

I'm convinced that the majority of people on here seem to not actually have a mental illness but caused their issues as a result of binge drinking. I read it all the time. It makes no sense.
That's a bit arrogrant, considering you don't know most, if any, of the people on here
