Lorazepam & alcohol: You did not mention dosage of lorazepam (drug comes in 3 strengths (.5, 1, and 2 mg). Half-life of this drug is 14 hours, meaning about 50% of dose is still in your system then. It is NOT a good idea to mix drugs like this (benzodiazepines) with alcohol, at all! Effects are synergistic, so magnifies effect of alcohol on your body. You could suffer serious effects, and NEVER drive on this mix!
