Very dangerous: Combining alcohol with many medications, especially psychiatric medications like seroquel (quetiapine) or valium, is extremely dangerous. They can cause abnormal consciousness, possibility of passing out, depressed breathing, and other problems.

What to do if i take 1, 100 mg Zoloft (sertraline) every morning. Is it safe if i drink alcohol later on in the day?

Alcohol is a universal solvent and i suspect that it somehow renders the ssri effect void for up to 72 hours if more than i is taken.
