Interesting. Alcohol, especially in large quantities is not great for anyone's brain, and does nto interact usefully with psych meds. I wonder whether possibly you experienced a major hangover, maybe exaggerated a bit by your meds, and then grew anxious ABOUT that, rekindling in part your earlier anxiety symptoms, and making your confidence a bit wobbly ?
If one drinks regularly while taking any psych med, it can both exaggerate side-efects, and can reduce the effectiveness of the antidepressant, WHILE you are taking them together - one single episode of acohol won't stop a drug like cilift from working for you ordinarily and in the longer term. It can't cancel out the present and future benefits of your meds. So this unpleasant reaction is more than due to fade out and return you to your previous even keel.
If it persists, see your prescribing doc again and explore alternatives.
