I am drinking Zoloft (sertraline) for depression. When I drinked alcohol, my heart started beating irregularly. What could that mean?
Drinking Zoloft (sertraline)? You're drinking zoloft (sertraline)? What does that mean? How much are you drinking? If you are drinking, the zoloft (sertraline) won't help with depression. Alcohol causes depression. Please discuss your symptoms with your prescribing physician while being completely open and honest about your alcohol consumption.
I have bipolar and depression. My dr has put me on Zoloft then changed it to effexor (venlafaxine). Nothing seems to wrk but I do drink in daily. Can that be why?
Drink? When you say "drink, " do you mean alcohol -- or do you mean taking the medicine? I don't see any mood stabilizers in your medications -- and it's dangerous for people with bipolar disorder to be on antidepressants without them. Please work with a psychiatrist -- it doesn't sound like you are! psychiatrists know many ways to help people with bipolar depression. Best wishes. Read more...
