Don't do it: Alcohol will significantly increase the risk of GI toxicity from this med and also increase the risk of liver toxicity.

What are the effects on drinking alcohol on anti-depressants?

Runs against them: Using both alcohol and antidepressants together runs the risk of intoxication and sedation -- more than expected with either alone. Also in the long run, alcohol is a depressant, and disrupts sleep cycle. Your antidepressant will be fighting this, in a sense. Alcohol may give the temporary illusion of improved mood, but repeated binges can also dysregulate -- rather than even out -- your mood.

How safe is the polyvinyl alcohol used for uterine aterial embolization?

Dr. Shawn Sarin

Safe: Pva is a safe particle that is used for uterine artery embolization. However, it's particles are irregular in shape and not a consistent size. Therefore the use of this has largely been abandoned outside of a few select centers. There are many other embolic agents that are used, thought to have have more uniform size.
