I'm taking celexa primarily for anxiety, about 2 and a half weeks now. A couple days ago I drank too many beers and my whole day was changed. I had panic attacks more frequently and became very depressed. My doctor did caution against drinking while on this medication. But, in my opinion, everyone's reaction to medicines and alcohol or just one or the other, will always be somewhat different. Everyone's a product of their lifestyle and habits.
