Can you drink alcohol on agomelatine?

Drinking alcohol while taking agomelatine is generally not recommended. Agomelatine may increase the effects of alcohol, and alcohol can interfere with the effectiveness of agomelatine.

In addition, alcohol can worsen symptoms of depression and anxiety, which may counteract the positive effects of agomelatine. Consuming alcohol while taking agomelatine may also increase the risk of side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and impaired coordination.

If an individual chooses to drink alcohol while taking agomelatine, they should do so in moderation and only with the approval of their healthcare provider. It is important to follow all instructions for taking agomelatine and report any concerning side effects or changes in mood or behavior to a healthcare provider.

There are various forms of drugs available, such as tablets or liquids, and each may have a separate patient information leaflet (PIL) for different doses. It is important to refer to the PIL for the specific form and dose of the drug that you have been prescribed.
