I've been on Citalopram just for about a week. My doctor said if you drink on them they just don't work at all but I heard from someone else it just makes you more drowsy, more drunk. I caved once and had a couple of drinks... just a couple... I felt more drowsy. I don't want them to not work though. Also my dad took them when he got really bad depression and he said he drank, hadn't heard not to even, and they worked fine. I know someone else who's on antidepressants and drinks but is it different depending on the type? Just wondering.
