Lexapro is a very small pill. It is easy to swallow. At least the ones that I saw were small. Your husband doesnt' sound like he is taking his depression seriously. Does he normally drink beer? A couple of beers isn't going to really hurt anything, I don't think, but as long as he isn't doing it a lot. But so many people don't realize that alcohol is a depressant, and even if you just drink a little daily, it will still make you depressed.
I hope that things work out between the two of you. You sound like such a sweet caring person. But remember to take care of you and let him work his out. He has to want to get better and he has to do this himself. You can be there to support him, but he has to do the work.
As Kitt says, you may need some support for your self through this, so think about counseling for you. It never hurts to have some back up. And reinforcement for yourself.
