Alcohol and psychotropic drugs do not mix well. The alcohol can reduce the medication's effectiveness at the same time it alters your inherent brain chemestry as a depressant. Drinking alcohol while taking antipsychotics also stresses your body's natural filters, the kidney's and liver. You run the risk of causing serious long-term or permanent damage. Avoid alcohol for now.
