Not wise: Lexapro (escitalopram) and alcohol are not a good mix and it's also risky w/ Advil - You can expect to be dizzy, drowsy, generally feel bad, weak and confused. There are some risks of internal bleeding w/ the combo pills. Find other choices - discuss w/ Dr and/or druggist honestly and intelligently.
