Alcohol magnifies the negative or dangerous effects of lorazepam. So, you may become more sleepy with Lorazepam plus alcohol, you may become less anxious, but the combination in excess, as you alluded to in your reference to wh, the combination also magnifies the respiratory suppressing component (can slow or stop breathing) of lorazepam. That said, "a few beers" what does that mean? One beer, two beers, or more? All of the medicines you talk about may magnify the negative effects of alcohol.
