> Everything I read suggests that you do not consume alcohol while taking zoloft. But the reason why is never available. Does anybody know? I know it's metabolized in the liver(as is etoh) and that depression is often associated with alcohol abuse, but are these the only reasons? Can drinking socially--moderately while on a SSRI really hurt you?

Oooh, I was on 50 mg of Zoloft a day and I had just one beer (1/2 liter). I would normally become "merry," you know, stripped of all the inhibitions, more talkative and active, but while on Zoloft, it was completely the opposite. I had a very nasty reaction - nausea, dizzines, slowed down in thinking and acting, generally feeling awful, the effects lasted all the following day when they gradually disappeared. I haven't drunk a drop of alcohol since then. Just my personal experience, but I guess, we are all different, so different people would react in different ways.
