Paxil CR and Alcohol

Posted by camelgirl on September 5, 2003, at 20:23:52

Hey there, everyone.
I've been taking 62.5 mg/day Paxil CR for about 3 months. I know that the directions say not to drink alcohol, but being someone who loves to drink -- every day -- it was very hard/nearly impossible. I've had some very disturbing reactions to my drinking that I had never experienced before taking the Paxil. Major blackouts where I CANNOT remember what I have done for hours at a time. Even talking to people who have been with me and who try to remind me of what I did has not helped me remember. My psychologist decided I was becoming a danger to myself from my behavior and Strongly Urged me to get substance abuse counseling. I am now in my third day of intensive outpatient therapy for substance abuse and have not had a drink in over a week -- a major accomplishment for me. Still lots further to go, but it's a start.
I guess my question is: Has anyone experienced similar blackouts from alcohol while taking Paxil CR? I have been searching everywhere for any information and have simply come up with: don't drink.
Thanks in advance!!
