NO clue.. .I drink on Lexapro, but I don't drink on the Ativan. I won't take the Ativan if I know I'm going to drink because then I end up become way too drunk after like one drink.

Maybe go to the Celexa website or call your pharmacist (like Walgreens) and just ask the pharmacist about drinking and Celexa.

Sorry, I have no clue either but it should say on the leaflet that comes with the pills or you could google it.
I hope you enjoy the birthday party...

probably will be OK

the general advice of no drinking on prescription meds is too general and written by lawyers

if you had enough time you could have experimented by trying 1 or 2 drinks at home first

this is always good advice when starting any prescription med, especially tranquillisers, as everyone reacts differently, some get up and dance on the table yeah

I just googled it and it gives advice that it is unwise to mix the medication with alcohol.
Hope this helps.

you should check with your doctor or pharmacist. Some meds I'm on say I shouldn't drink,but my pharmacist says it's ok in low amounts, so maybe check with a pharacist? hope that helps

since your reaction cant be predicted, most experts take the easy way out and say no drinking at all

however, social drinking can be important to keep up the morale and keep a sense of social and coltural normalcy with friends and family, therefore my suggestion, experiment at home first

also experiment with cough cures or anything with antihistamines and alcahol
