Try to calm down.: There is a big difference between trace amount of alcohol and drinking a beer. You will likely be just fine. Take care.

Don't worry: If the drink contains a trace amount of alcohol, it's not likely to cause much reaction with ativan (lorazepam). Be cautious hereafter about consuming alcohol with the ativan (lorazepam), however. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

No worry: You are not supposed to take Ativan (lorazepam) with alcoholic beverage. Large amount may increase the side effect of Ativan (lorazepam). Trace is ok.
