If you drink on a regular basis, you will get accustomed to it, over Christmas break I had a lot of partying nights and actually was able to drink more while on Zoloft ( 100mg/day) than without it. If you don't normally drink often though, 2 beers will get you drunk. Just be careful and really pace yourself if you decide you are going to drink against the cautions of your doctor and the directions for taking it.
I am currently on 100mg of zoloft and i drink either Friday or Saturday night pretty heavily (just one night a week) and to start off with it makes me get drunk ten times faster than before I was on the zoloft. I get more stupid and also pass out quicker and am very tired. It doesn't say not to take the two together my doc says it just intensifies the effect.Answer
It is recommended that you do not drink while on sertraline/Zoloft. Alcohol is a depressant, and conflicts with your brain whilst taking anti-depressants.
However, the affects of alcohol with Zoloft depend on the person for the most part. I have been taking Zoloft for several months, and I drink quite a bit. For the first week of being on the medication I didn't drink at all; then I started to drink heavily. The only effects of this I noticed were that the alcohol took to my system much more quickly, meaning I got drunk a lot quicker than normal, and that when I stopped drinking I would sink quite badly into depression. I've now been able to control this a bit better by going to bed straight away after drinking.
However I know that other people on the same medication react differently to it, but on the whole the effects seem to be similar. I am not a medical professional and I have no experience in the department except my own experience on Zoloft. In short, it's fine to do it, but you will get drunk faster and may suffer from depression badly afterwards.
More Answers:AnswerI am not a medical provider and have absolutly no medical training WHAT SO EVER!!! Yet I was on zoloft for a short period of time after having my third child and i also drank alcohol while on it, therefore maybe i can help. It just made me extremely tired.

It may cause some serious side-effects. Answermy friend had a zoloft prescription and had alchohol the other night just a couple beers, and you will get drunk, with the smallest amounts of alchohol in your system.
He got very pale, tired, add an extreme case of uncontrollable vomiting, which i had to clean up.
i was on zoloft for 2 years i drank alcohol and nothing happened 2 me! i got drunk faster so u have 2 be careful how much u drinkAnsweryou are taking a SSRI. it loads serotonin into your brain which makes you happy. alcohol is a depressant. so what that means is. your therapy with the SSRI will cease to be effective. then you will start thinking that the medication doesn't work. but the real reason it's not working is because you are drinking. so that's why it's not smart to drink when taking an anti-depressant.
