Yes but: Its hard to know from the info you provided but be careful. Even if you are not taking Ativan (lorazepam) on the day you plan on drinking it can alter your tolerance and perhaps give you some unpredictable effects. Even moderate alcohol consumption and this med is dangerous. Have fun without it.
