As a recovering alcoholic, i will address the drinking while taking meds issue. It is my opinion and the opinion of many medical professionals that if you drink alcohol (a depressant) anti-depressants will not work, or definitely not work as well. It is like fighting fire with fire! Also, i personally experienced this myself drinking and wondering why aren't these meds working for my depression???
I feel bad for your husband, he's in a bad place, but he's got to give up the booze. Would he consider going to AA meetings?
My opinion is this; Do what ever is necessary to stop the drinking. Talk to your Doctor about trying something different for the depression-perhaps Remeron, a very potent snri, (remeron helped me for about 6 yrs.) it is great for pulling someone out of the pit of depression, and is more powerful than typical ssri's-prozac, zoloft, etc. Also, i think your husband needs some counciling, maybe not a lot, but some.
The sooner the drinking stops the better. If not, it'll probably just get progressively worse. I hope this helps a little.
