Psychotropic Drug Therapy and Alcohol
Question: Can I drink beer while taking psychotropic drugs?
|IT SAYS THAT ALCOHOL AND MEDICINES CAN BE A DANGEROUS COMBINATION. BEST TO BEWARE OF MEDICINES.
The answer is definitely no!
It's not advisable at all to drink alcohol when you're
taking psychotropic drugs of any kind, since it can be very dangerous, as one can never know what to expect when you associate alcohol use to drug use.
Sometimes alcohol can diminish the effect of the psychotropic drug, and sometimes it can increase this effect. In any case the final result is absolutely impredictable.
If you have a problem of alcohol abuse (acute or chronic) you'd better talk with your doctor about it and eventually refer to the A.A. association for a specific treatment before taking psychotropic drugs.
