SSRIs can cause intense alcohol cravings in some people (even in previous non-drinkers). AND, in some people, SSRIs can take away the ability to know when they've had too much to drink. Just because you can no longer feel the buzz doesn't mean you aren't inebriated!!! I watched that happen to someone close to me for years before I figured out his med was the culprit. Caused a lot of problems. Google it. You'll be shocked at some of the stories.

I'm in the same position, I've had clinical depression for 6 months now and can't even remember the last time i was drunk. I'm not on any medication at all apart from some weed occasionally and even that doesn't hardly get me buzzed. Nothing works, sleeping pills don't work except i get the hang over the next morning so I'm not doing anything really not even caffeine cus it makes my anxiety worse. I'm getting help now though, therapy.

Also forgot to add I've never been on any anti depressants my whole life even as a child (cus my parents didn't know what depression was)
And my depression now was sort of triggered by an event so to say which im getting help for.
