i'm wondering what the physical consequences of alcohol and paxil are? i've read and been told everything from death to increased drowsiness, but have personally found that most of my problems occur after drinking, not during. i have noticed my heart beating slower, but assumed it was because i was relaxed.

lately i have been dealing with sleep disturbances and mental confusion, as well as anxiety. recently my paxil dosage was increased from 20mg to 30mg. i drink, on average, a moderate dose of whisky a night. (roughly half of a pint, to be exact)

i appreciate any and all help. thanks!

Paxil does not increase the mental or motor impairment of alcohol.

However you are probably on Paxil because you experience depression or anxiety. Alcohol can cause you to become more depressed and it is generally not a good idea to drink alcohol while depressed.

Many people feel like Alcohol relieves their symptoms of anxiety or depression. In reality it may do that in the extremely short-term as you describe but in the long-run it creates an addiction to alcohol. So now not only would you have to battle Depression/Anxiety you have the added challenge of the mental and physiological addiction of alcohol. (Run on sentence:P)
