I had been taking lexapro (the more selective version of cipralex) and while on it I would go out drinking about once a week.
A drinking session for me would typically consist of a large amount of alcohol, typically around 12 drinks or more.
I found that lexapro in combination with alcohol would make me act very happy, outgoing, complete loss of inhibition. It was kind of enjoyable, at times almost a type of manic episode. However, I would sometimes get a little too happy, too loud, too wild, I would talk to anyone and everyone.
I almost got into a few fights during the times I drank while on lexapro because of this...my behavior would at times border on out of control.
I have since stopped taking lexapro, in part to how it would effect me when I drank. Though I never had bad hangovers or ill effects afterwards. My behavior while on the combination is what worried me.
I have since found I enjoy drinking a lot less, which is fine with me. The only time I noticed any effects from the lexapro is when I went out drinking.
