i mixed alcohol and zoloft...

Recommended Posts

i know it was a bad idea... i don't need to hear that.

what i want to know is... if anything like this has happened to anyone else after mixing any ssri's with alcohol..

i drank maybe 5 drinks, came home, felt fine, went to bed just feeling tipsy. some may know i've had some major problems w/ my relationship as of late. well we went to bed on good terms. apparently i woke up in the middle of the night screaming and hurling abuse at my partner. i said some really awful vile things... things i've NEVER thought (it sounds like i was just trying to be hurtful - things like, "you're ugly and disgusting and a loser") and then i punched him in the face. i made him cry.. and laughed at him.. he said i scared him for the first time in our 6 years together.

i don't remember ANY of this.

i have never been abusive or violent.. i used to drink heavily (with and w/o medication) and NEVER blacked out, became violent, forgot about anything i did while drunk, etc. i've never hit anyone before. i mean i seriously am horrified at this - he makes it sound like i was possessed.

obviously i haven't drank since then. but i want to know if this is a sign of something seriously wrong in my head, or if mixing zoloft and booze can produce a black-out effect like this (while sleeping?!).

I've noticed that my tolerance is waaayyy down since being on meds.

Lesson learned. How to rectify this?

Smaller glasses?

If you haven't been drinking lately, isn't 5 drinks an awful lot? Alcohol is pretty notorious for making (or at least letting) people rage.

I had one full drink when taking Prozac and emotionally lost it, but not in an aggressive way. Who knows what might have happened if I'd had a few more? Since then I've limited myself to maybe a quarter of a drink at a time.

You should, however, mention this to your pdoc and your therapist.
