Celexa & drugs and alcohol
Feb 14, 2000

i had an tylenol overdose a month ago and now i am taking the anti-depressant Celexa, and i was wondering what would happen if I drank alcohol or used marijuana. PLease answer my question, i would really like to know.

Response from Dr. Fisher

Alcohol usually is not a good idea when taking antidepressants as alcohol is a depressant itself.

No data on MJ, but probably safe.

Alvan Fisher, M.D.

Help! This is a serious issue here!
