Prob not a good idea: I am guessing you are taking it for mood stability. Alcohol is bad for mood stability. Also, not sure about lamictal, but with ssris, alcohol washes the medication out of the body, and the med is trying to build to a steady blood level. See the problem? In addition to alcohol being a depressant, it lowers the blood level of many meds.
