This is wrong. As I have said before Prozac has even been trialled in the
treatment heavy drinking. It seems to reduce drinking to some extent in some.
It does *not* reduce tolerance to ethanol.
Many would, however, say that alcohol consumption in contraindicated in
depression - that is a different issue.
