The primary problem that is associated with consuming both Seroquel and alcohol is the fact that the side-effect profile of Seroquel may be magnified. In short, patients who take alcohol with Seroquel find that they experience a greater degree of dizziness, tiredness and low blood pressure. In addition, the effects of alcohol on the body can be worsened when Seroquel is taken.
In addition to its effects on blood pressure and overall health, Seroquel and alcohol combination can affect an individual’s cognitive abilities. Furthermore, performing regular tasks that require motor skills can also be blunted by combining the two. Patients may get excessively drunk on small amounts of alcohol when on Seroquel.
