> 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.

Agreed...some people do seem to have lowered tolerance for alcohol on SSRIs, so you need to reassess your tolerance if you plan to drink because it may be different. And then there are people who just can't drink at all on these meds and others who don't notice any change.

Putting unnecessary restrictions on people (like dietary restrictions, etc.) leads to poor compliance with meds, so I think that absolute restrictions like "never drink alcohol with this" ought to be avoided.
