Anyone out there think that if you drink while on the first couple of weeks of Lexapro it may slow the time it will take effect in your body? I drink wine every night and i was just curious cause I want the Lexapro to work as fast as possible.

I have read in several places that drinking while on Lexapro does infact take away from the drug working. I have also read about people saying they had bad reactions, such as blacking out, and other things like that. I would suggest you try not to drink while taking Lexapro, or any prescription drug for that matter.

Wishing you all the best!

I believe that all of the ADs advise no alcohol with the meds. Bad combo.

Take care and keep posting.
