Ok, I've been on Citalopram 20mg for a week and a half now, I was under alot of stress due to work stuff, but anyway.
I rarely go out with my friend for a drink, but when we do go out, we typically drink alot.
I didnt really want to have to give up a night out, so I did some research on Citalopram and Alcohol.
According to most websites and peoples testimonies, Alcohol doesnt interact with Citalopram. Dispite the generic warning associated with all anti-depressents regarding alcohol, I went out last night, and drank alot. I had taken my pill at about 2pm, and started drinking at about 9-10pm, drinking till about 1am.
Something somewhat bad happened at around 2am.
I got into an argument with a friend, and we sorta ended up not talkin for about 10 minutes, and during that 10 minutes, I was sorta contemplating the whole thing. Which I think may have stressed me out.
So, what happened next, was my head started getting tingley, and numb, and I tried walking to somewhere quiet (was in a night club) and I remember leaning against a wall, and then the next thing I know, someones helping me up from the floor.
My head has a big friction burn down the side of it now, from where I must have passed out, and scraped my face against the wall on my way down.
But anyway, I have never reacted this way to alcohol before, and there are only two possibilities I can think off.
1. Citalopram did it
2. Someone spiked my drink.
If I had walked near the toilets god knows what I woulda woke up to. Lol, but in any case, I passed out and I was just wondering if anyone knew what the most likely cause might have been? (out of these two possibilities)
I've got a follow up appointment with the doctor tomorrow, dunno If I should tell him about my binge drinking last night. Hes gonna see the mark on my face from me fainting.
