    Don't stop taking your pills, even if you drink.

    if you are on anti-depressants this will not effect you, beside the normal effect you get from alcohol.. It is the barbiturate's and downers that you need to not mix.. You should take your paxil today, it will take about 2 weeks for you to recieve any results from your paxil..

    Don't quit the paxil. Alcohol will increase the side effects of paxil. You'll get intoxicated easier, tired quicker,can increase dizziness ect..

    There is a warning on the anti-depressant bottle that you should not drink and take the pills. They will counteract each other. Just go to the party and have fun, just don't drink!

    you have only been on it for a short time, but it is still in you system. you should never drink on any prescription meds at all!!! i've made the mistake too many times, thinking i can be a hotshot and know it all, and it affected me in ways that i totally don't even remember!!!

    it was like having a date rape drug put in your drink!! you do the most stupid things, that you would not normally do!!

    i'm 40 yrs. old and just learned my lesson, please don't do it for your saftey sake!! good luck!!

    Premature ejaculation is caused by specific things that you do before and during sex. Most of the time without even realizing it. Read here https://tr.im/4OMod

    Premature ejaculation is not some gene you're born with, the result of your penis size or a part of your personality that you can never change.
