I am taking vilazine 40 .can I drink occasionally alcohol? Could it effects my libido?

1 Doctor Answered
Hi, Vilazodone (Active ingredient in Vilazine) is an antidepressant. There is usually no serious interaction with small amounts of alcohol. However, alcohol has direct effect on some Mental Illnesses (particularly anxiety disorders) and your treating Psychiatrist will be in a better position to answer if there is any potential for deterioration of the underlying illness for which Vilazodone has been prescribed. It can decrease libido in few cases. However, Depression is more common culprit for decreased libido and in majority of the cases it actually improves libido. Best wishes.
