AHA...you have posted with 2 nurses lol answering you
I am happy you have chosen this career path it has so so many rewards ....
I have been off this site prolly in all totallity about 14 days in the years I have been here...the longest was just a bit ago whilst moving and Kitt ( lil Sis) was looking after all here
PERSONALLY I would not drink with ativan or Lexapro AT all the lexapro is in your system and it is working but you have yet to feel anything as it takes time to manifest into your total body system and of course into your brain......
With that said even though you are taking ativan in the am's the Lexapro is still in your bloodstream....
I may be more biased about drinking I have to admit as I am a recovering and still sober alcoholic since 1979 and am not for booze at all.Mind you ppl are fine drinking around me its been long enough that I can deal with that but the thoughts and knowledge of what can or may happen mixing the 2 (drink and Lexapro) is a big NO NO in my opinion.....
I am glad you have come to HW and you are finding the support you need
