Not advised: Drinking on an ssri antidepressant can make depression or anxiety persist ("fighting" the treatment). It increases seizure risk. Can make alcohol feel stronger, impairing driving and similar activities more than expected. The standard rule: avoid all alcohol. That said, people use ssris for months or years; some use alcohol occasionally in small amts and are ok. Weigh the risks.

Is it safe to drink alcohol 12 hours after taking 1mg of lorazepam?

Is it safe to drink alcohol 12 hours after taking 1mg of lorazepam?

Yes: Lorazepam has a 14 hour half life so it won't be 100% eliminated from your system, but 1 mg is a small dose. You may notice that you are more sensitive to alcohol after taking a lorazepam, but the risk of dangerous respiratory depression is nil. As always, avoid driving or using dangerous machinery (as you would with alcohol anyway).

How long after taking codine 15 mg tablets is it safe to drink alcohol

How long after taking codine 15 mg tablets is it safe to drink alcohol

4-6 hours IF: You are not talking about taking EXCESSIVE amounts of alcohol. Codeine is a relatively short-acting drug, and after a 15-30 mg dose, most of it should be metabolized to inactive metabolites within 6 hours. However, in higher doses (of either codeine or alcohol) it may cause more problems. The combination of alcohol and opioids (including codeine) increases the chance of side effects and sedation.
