    I've been taking Effexor about 2-3 years now, currently on 75mg a day. I've been doing some fairly heavy drinking since turning 21 (about 1.5 years ago).

    I'm curious if anyone else has had expereince with alcohol and effexor. I haven't really noticed any side effects, but then again, I've never drank while NOT on effexor. It seems to me that Effexor intensifies the effecs of alcohol, because I always seem to get more drunk off of less drinks than most other people.

    Has anyone experimented with Effexor and Alocohl? Any side effects?

    If effexor is an anti-depressant, it shouldn't be mixed with alcohol as it ruins the effectiveness of the anti-depressant.
