  1. Because alcohol is a depressant. In addition, the chemical composition of some drugs when combined with ethyl alcohol can cause poisoning and other adverse effects.

  2. Antidepressants are substances that adjust the mediator system and, as a result, stabilize the psychoemotional sphere.

    Alcohol, on the contrary, upsets the mediator system, that is, it is essentially a source of depression and bad mood. Therefore, the combined use of medications and alcohol, at least eliminates the effect of drugs, as a maximum aggravates the symptoms for which you were prescribed treatment with antidepressants.

  3. Good afternoon, Gulnara! Alcohol is not recommended by doctors to take at all in principle, as it is a poison to the body. Combination with antidepressants can lead to severe toxic effects.

  4. It is not recommended to combine alcohol intake with antidepressants, since they have the opposite principle of action.

    Antidepressants are designed to adjust the mediator system, as a result, the person's psychoemotional state stabilizes. Alcohol works exactly the opposite. It upsets the neurotransmitter system, actually causing a depressed mood and the onset of depression.

    If you use alcohol and antidepressants together, this, at a minimum, eliminates the effect of medications. In some cases, the symptoms that were prescribed antidepressants to eliminate may worsen.

  5. Antidepressants and alcohol are incompatible. When they are taken at the same time, dangerous side effects develop. They are manifested by changes in blood pressure, problems with blood clotting, gastrointestinal disorders, convulsions, increased production of adrenaline, tachycardia. Alcohol eliminates the effect of antidepressants, which makes therapy useless. As a result, the depressive state only worsens. This can lead to suicide attempts. Vegetative-vascular dystonia and cirrhosis of the liver also develop. The first intake of alcohol is allowed no earlier than 14 days after the complete cessation of treatment.
