There are various possibilties, none of them desirable. Alcohol undermines the antidepressant effects of the drug, so you get less value or effectivemes for your money, and maybe risk the recovery you need and deserve. Alcohol tends to increase the side-effects of the drug, which is also not something you'd want. And alcohol itself is a depressant drug, worsening depression ( the fact that it may very temporarily make you feel a bit more cheerful is an illusion ).
