In brief: Talk to prescriber

Hi Emily, your Dr is your best source of information regarding this.
He/she knows your history, medical problems, and other medications you might be taking. Many people do drink light to moderate amounts of alcohol while taking Sertraline without adverse side effects, but alcohol can create unwanted emotions, and can affect your medication's ability to do what it's supposed to do, so ask your doc.
