I am on a rather high dose of zoloft as it is 200mg and I am on .5 klonazapan a day.

The other day I took a small sip of vodka maybe like 1/10 of a shot and all of a sudden the whole room got dizzy, I couldnt even walk straight.

I tried it again later that night and I felt the same way.

A few nights before I must have taken about 3-4 shots over 2 hours and I felt just tired, nothing more.

Can such a small amount of alcohol really mess you up that much if your on zoloft? The first night I did it I was fine then I take one sip the next night and poof I am like dizzy as hell, but not really feeling "drunk".

This happen to anyone?

The answer is that it can have weird effects with alcohol, and can even (very rarely) be dangerous.

Many people are fine drinking with these drugs. You obviously had a bit of an odd reaction to it. It's nothing to worry about especially, but there's no easy answers until you get off the drug.

This is what the dr. told me about drinking while on an antidepressant----it is not dangerous, but it can cause the antidepressant to be much less effective. Not sure how accurate that is, as it is just one dr.s opinion, but I still thought I would share.

well it was 70% proff and I drank nothing which was so odd. I drank like 1/4 of a shot maybe not even but it induced such an odd off balance.

Never the less as much as I liked to do it before I guess ill have to part with it from now on...

orangeaid zoloft inhibits your brain's ability to reabsorb serotonin, a neurotransmitter that sends nerve impulses between nerve cells and influences mood. Alcohol also affects serotonin levels in your brain. Using these two drugs together could produce unexpected and unwanted emotions.

If you have been prescribed zoloft because you have a mental illness, you should probably stay away from alcohol.
I have personaly done a lot of toying with my own serotonin levels and that is why I currently have dp/dr. Personally I would never take zoloft because I know it will have the same effect as acid on me. I have had severe flashbacks before by takeing meds.
If you now know that alcohol and zoloft together make you feel a little off, I would advise not experimenting anymore!
