It doesn't, sadly decrease dementia once one has it, but decreases the risk. Of course any proper doc prescribing ANY drug ought to discuss side-effects, and interactions / precautions with you. Antidepressants like Venlor, and especially some of the older ones, can indeed interact with alcohol, making you more drunk than expected, and alcohol can also reduce the effectiveness of the antidepressant. Discuss this with your doc. If cyou need for some reason to remain on an AD for the long-term, he might choose a different one to maintain you on, which would cause less problems with alcohol ; or you could just concentrate on other steps like exercise and good diet than also reduce the risk
