I honestly don't think anybody is going to want to say anything other than antidepressants and alcohol don't mix Natalia. Alcohol is a depressant, therefore it works against the anti depressant. It is not recommended.

On my bottle, it says that may cause drowsiness or dizziness and alcolhol could intensify this effect.
