Wife on antidepressants and alcohol

My wife takes Celexa, and drinks alcohol -- two or three glasses of wine two or three times a week. Because of this mix, she has a hard time focusing and completing projects and this causes her to become frustrated. She is also more argumentative when she has been drinking. I don't drink and I don't think she should either while taking the antidepressant. Should I continue to hope she will eventually see the light and stop drinking or am I being unrealistic?

Get some professional advice, its easy for everyone to judge people, but sounds to me as if she is crying out for help, you just have to work out what it is. Go visit your doctor, he/she will signpost you to the relevant person to help you through this difficult time, if you get advice and guidance, you will then be in a position to support your wife through what ever she is going through, Don't give up, Good Luck

I think you're being unrealistic, she obviously needs the drink to keep going and realises that it's not compatible with the pills, I really feel for you, perhaps you could look into getting her some counselling or something similar as the drinking and antidepressants are treating the symptoms - not the cause, maybe the g.p.'s surgery has a counsellor attached

No, you are not being unrealistic, try to sit her down and talk and try and reason with her. If she carries on things will only get worse. If that doesn't work try a friendly chat with perhaps your GP, they maybe able to help. Whatever, don't let her go on like this. Good luck!

Hi, i have been on antidepressants on and off for the past few years and for the first few years i didnt drink at all. The doc advised me not to drink and when i have drank i just get very drunk from 2 drinks. My advise to you would be to discuss your concerns with your wife at a time when she is relaxed and do it in a constructive and loving way so you can make her understand that this is not helping her. You could also ask her to tell her doctor that she is drinking, i am sure the doctor will have something to say about this.hop my advice helped. Best of luck

Alcohol is a depressant and she's taking antidepresants? Sounds to me like she may have some deeper issues and an addictive personality. Get her into an alcohol rehab or at least a good doctor to help her. If she won't help herself, then save yourself and get out of this relationship.
