Can you have a few glasses of wine at night or a light beer if you take 10mg of lexapro (escitalopram) in the morning each day?

Alcohol/SSRI intx.: The use of moderate amounts of alcohol is not usually a problem with SSRI's (anti-depressants), but the combination of tranquilizers which are closely related to alcohol are more concerning. Of course, the extent to which you use alcohol and the reasons for it may be more concerning.
