I am sorry to read of your boyfriend's problems. I would strongly encourage you to support him in following up with his Dr. as he would benefit greatly from working closely with the Dr. that prescribed the medication.
Drinking and antidepressants do not go well together and weaning off the medication safely should be done under the supervision of a medical professional IMHO.
