> I am one of 3 people who has used Xanax, Zoloft and Prozac. In all these times I noticed some horrible side-effects when drinking amongst all of us. Blathering, incl personal history, I would not usually tell, show none of my usual restraint on yelling at people, phoning and on some sexual incidents. My usual benchmarks and controls weren't there.
> I would appreciate some info on this and am also disappointed that there are no warnings about.
> Yes, I know we are not supposed to drink on these things, but if we knew the risks things may have been different. I also did not know drink would increase the effect of the anti-depressant ??
> I have also read an article on up and coming legal cases in the states where people are suing the company that makes Prozac for cases where people believe murders and deaths would not have happened. eg. The lead singer of Del Shannon shooting himself whilst on Prozac. I found these drugs make you become dissociated and can make you feel more messed up in some ways than before.
> I am now very concerned of these side-effects, off these pills and want to know what has been found and what will be done to educate people of these possibilities.

While on Zoloft, I had some very similar experiences.
Basically, I became a party animal and would walk
up to just about anybody and start yaking. I
began smoking cigarettes, pot, drinking wine,
etc... and basically succumbing to my lowest
behavioral denominator.

For me, Zo had the twin effect of (a) reducing
my ability to say NO and (b) making it way more
enjoyable to say YES. Now, if only it didn't
destroy my sexual response; I mean I could have
really made up for all that lost time as a
moody wallflower...

Alas, drug induced hypomania is a non-sustainable
lifestyle. It is however, a real kick when you've
spent such a large portion of your life not being
very social.

Yet I think the world does need moody wallflowers,
people who are prone to melancholy and not what
our current society would call "happy". But it
does suck to be suicidal. I just could not find
the in-between with Zo...

As for the murder stuff, I had one discussion
with another person on SSRI's and we agreed that
these drugs would not necessarily make you kill
more easily, but they might certainly make you
care less about the moral consequences. I'm
glad you are talking about this stuff. It is
very interesting to me.
