Alchol and depression

Hi, i have had mild depression since January this year and it seemed to have been getting better, i am on SJW. but on Saturday i went to a party and drank more than i normally do, i noticed that on the Sunday i started having the same depressed/paranoid feelings again, i am worried that i am becoming depressed again? can the alcohol be a contribution to it? i have been drinking about 5 times a week for the past 2 weeks but only for recreation not to numb the pain? is the alcohol canceling out the SJW, should i just stop drinking? and i wanted to know if this sad feeling is an after affect of drinking?

Drinking alcohol is to depression what fertilizer is to a plant. I don't recognize SJW as an antidepressant,, but alcohol reduces the benefits of ALL antidepressants. Take a proper AD, and NO alcohol and see how much better you can feel. Find a different and non-chemical form of recreation.

is SJW an antidepressant? if so you should not drink any alcohol with it.
