Who should not take cycloserine?

You should not take cycloserine if any of the following describes you:
  • You are a heavy drinker or have epilepsy. Alcohol and cycloserine do not mix. Taking cycloserine increases your risk for epileptic seizures. Adding alcohol dramatically raises that risk.
  • You have kidney problems. If your kidneys are not healthy, you may not be able to remove cycloserine from your system. That could lead to toxic levels of this drug in your blood.
  • You suffer from depression, severe anxiety or psychosis. Cycloserine could worsen these conditions.
