Thats an interesting question. From what I understand alcohol is a "depressant" so it tends to be rather counterproductive when taking AD medication ... but then again, if it makes you less depressed and maybe give you less of a reason to drink then maybe its a good idea.
My sense is that you would feel even better if you didn,t drink as the meds wil have the opportunity to act unhindered ... but I would talk about it with your doctor and see what he recommends.
