I was diagnosed with depression today and my doctor prescribed me Effexor (37.5mg) I plan on starting on the medicine tomorrow. This Friday I'm going out of town for a bachelorette party. I will be drinking quite a bit the entire weekend but I'm worried about
mixing the anti-depressants with alcohol. I know, in general, it's not a good idea to mix the two but I'm curious since I'm just starting out, so to speak, if I will experience any adverse affects? Does it take some time for the medicine to get in your system? Should I just wait until after the weekend to start taking the Effexor? I do not intend to drink while on the medication once this weekend is done. (I don't drink much anyway but this weekend is kind of a big deal.) Any advice on what to expect would be much appreciated.
Hi Erica, I gave your thread a title...
