To have a blood alcohol level as high as.22, more than double the legal limit, half an hour after an accident someone needs to check for an antidepressant. That is the most common cause of strong compulsions for alcohol which would produce a level that high. The antidepressants themselves also increase the alcohol level by interfering with the metabolism.
The same was the case with Princess Di’s driver, Henri Paul. I worked with the Paris police on that case helping them understand why they needed to look for an antidepressant. A week later they revealed to the world that they found that Henri Paul was indeed on Prozac.
Antidepressants can produce overwhelming cravings for alcohol. You can find more information on this side effect of antidepressants at: http://www.drugawareness.org/book-excerpts/ssris-and-alcohol

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!
WITHDRAWAL HELP: You can find the hour and a half long CD on safe and effective withdrawal helps here: http://store.drugawareness.org/ And if you need additional consultations with Ann Blake-Tracy, you can book one at www.drugawareness.org or sign up for one of the memberships for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness which includes free consultations as one of the benefits of that particular membership plan.
