Wondering if I can ever drink while talking Lexapro (escitalopram)? Would like to eventually have a glass of wine or a beer. I've heard some people drink while on it

Firstly you're 19: And you live in the US, so it's not legal for you to drink, and not ethical for me to advise you about its safety. Secondly, alcohol is a depressant drug, and you have depression. While there is no evidence, in adults, that an occasional drink is harmful regarding either depression or treatment with antidepressants, regular drinking and heavy drinking (more than 3 per occasion) is clearly harmful.

I take 10mg of buspirone daily for situational anxiety. Is it ok to have a small glass of wine or a beer once every 1-2 months?

Other viewpoints?: I'm not an expert on this. I'd think such a wee amount would not cause a great problem. As you seem to know it is generally not advised to drink any alcohol with this drug. If you can control your intake to this level - I expect you'll be fine. I also wonder if you might question the need for such a powerful medication. Think about psychotherapy as an alternative with tapering off the drug. Best. Read more

No problem: Although it may potentially have an additive effect to the drowsiness induced by alcohol. Make sure you don't drive after the combination on the first occasion just to make sure. If no problem, you may even try 2 glasses of wine and do the same observation but no more. Read more

Talk to your doctor: Combining your medication with alcohol can have an additive sedating effect. For instance, having one glass of wine may be the equivalent of having two or three. Please do not drink and drive. Talk to your doctor about their specific recommendations. I tend to advise my patients against the use of alcohol. Best wishes! Read more
