Lorazepam: Lorazepam could stay in your system for up to 2.5 days. One way to find out if Lorazepam is in you system is to do a drug screen for benzodiazepine (but that is not practical). Your question is challenging. The best way is to talk to your doctor becuase it is important to understand why you use lorazepam, and why you want to drink alcohol.
