Man Abuses Medics & Police: Mixed Alcohol with A/D, a Dangerous Combo
Last four paragraphs read: "Stephen Warburton, defending, said Evans had been drinking alcohol and he had taken medication for depression."
" 'He is extremely ashamed and he is sorry not just to the court but to the medical staff and the police called to the scene,' said Mr Warburton.
"Evans was horrified when details of the case were read to him."
"He had mental health problems, had severe depression and the alcohol he was not supposed to take had combined with his medication."
SSRI Stories Note: The Physicians Desk Reference states that antidepressants can cause a craving for alcohol and can cause alcohol abuse. Also, the liver cannot metabolize the antidepressant and the alcohol simultaneously, thus leading to higher levels of both alcohol and the antidepressant in the human body.
