Dr-patient relation: One's own dr may not recommend this to the next patient. T has to do with the doctor-patient relationship & the trust that goes along with it. Generally, not a good idea to mix benzodiazepines (e.g. Ativan (lorazepam) & alcohol) & Ativan (lorazepam) is not always the best idea. At the end of all this, the answer lies withing the doctor-patient relationship.

I would not do it: I would not drink any alcohol with ativan (lorazepam).
