Welcome to HealingWell and the A & P forum.
I agree you should be consulting your physician regarding your use of alcohol and SSRIs and liver disease. Alcohol is the one that will harm your liver for sure.
The combination of an SSRI and alcohol could possibly increase the chance or severity of side effects such as drowsiness, slow reflexes, or clouded judgment. This can be dangerous when driving a car or operating other machinery.
Also, alcohol may make you feel depressed. In this way, alcohol can interfere with the actions of your SSRI to treat depression. Try to avoid or limit your use of alcohol while taking an SSRI.
I take an SSRI and I do not use any alcohol. I hope you will follow up with your physician.So happy you brought this subject back up as we are here to support you. Stick with us.Kitt
