Is it safe to drink alcohol on sertraline (Zoloft)?

I read that you should avoid it completely but I don t know if it s overexaggerating. I saw a source that said it s okay to drink in moderation on it. So would 3-4 drinks on occasion be okay?

    Yes it's fine although there's the usual warning that alcohol is a depressant. ''You can drink alcohol while taking sertraline, but it may make you feel sleepy. It might be best to stop drinking alcohol until you see how the medicine makes you feel.'' https://www.nhs.uk/medicines/sertraline/

    It is very unwise to ignore the warnings on medications in favor of some random internet stuff.  I hate to break it to you but people are not always honest online.

    No.  SSRI drugs build up in your system over time to a therapeutic level.
