Problem: It is really not about the timing, and i understand that the answer might sound extreme. First of all, you mention alprazolam, Clonazepam in your list of meds, but only ask about ativan (lorazepam). Your dr probably assumed that you would not use alcohol while on treatment with those 3 CNS depressants. We don t know when you will take or need your next ativan (lorazepam). Please ask your dr.

Right away: You can drink alcohol right away without it affecting anything if all you got was a "novocaine" shot.

As for the drowsiness well....some people claim they are ready to rock and roll right after and some people say it took them a full month to regain their sleep cycle.
