Ativan (lorazepam): You can drink if you are of legal age. Do not mix the two. Treat the anxiety so that you don't have to take the Ativan (lorazepam). See a specialist, do relaxation exercises, a great website is dawnbuse.com it is free and has relaxation techniques that can benefit you so that you don't have to rely on Ativan (lorazepam). Hope this helps.
