> Are you guys talking about taking the pill with a sip of alcohol and keep drinking at the same time, or taking geodon in the morning anf then drink in the afternoon? these are 2 different things, Id never taking the medicine and alcohol at the same minute, (like both in my stomach at the same time), but Im wondering if I can ocasionaly have a glass of wine while under treatment with Geodon (sorry english is my second language, hope it made sense)

Hi Musica,

Short answer: probably fine, depending on your dose of geodon.

I take Geodon at a very small dose (10mg twice a day) as an antidepressant, and drink the same day without any problem, or any interruption of the medication's positive effects. If you also take a small dose, I'd say it's probably no problem. However, it might (?) possible there could be health issues at higher doses. I don't know this, I'm just saying I don't know. Geodon and other antipsychotics have effects on your heart, and my worry would be that alcohol could complicate that effect. However, this worry could be completely unfounded. I do not have a good understanding of alcohol's effect on the cardiovascular system (other than that it's a peripheral vasodilator).

Do you have any issues with your heart? If not, I probably would say go ahead and have a drink with your Geodon. Otherwise, I am not sure.

That's the best answer I can give as an informal student of these things. Hope it's helpful.
