Basically, don't drink.

It makes you depressed anyway.

I would not recommend doing it again.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Really bad idea to drink with seroquel and especially lithium...our best advice is not to drink..it IS a depressant even tho you feel happy at first...life on meds is hard enough without adding alcohol to the mix...try to drink club soda, an occasional drink(ONE) is acceptable for me, anything more than that and I have a crying jag the next day. Who needs that?

take care of yourself, if it is reactive or situational depression, you may well be able to stop meds at some future date. You are young and there will plenty of time for partying later after you get yourself squared away, ok?

Take care and let us know
