Lexapro is an ANTIDEPRESSENT. Alcohol is a DEPRESSENT. Therefor, the Lexapro may not work as intended when mixed with alcohol. ALSO any medicaton you take passes through your liver, as does alcohol. So in the long run, you could "overwork" your liver and cause liver problems. Ask your prescribing physician or if you are uncomfortable doing that, next time you pick up your prescription, ask the pharmacist about special precautions. They are pretty knowledgeable.
3rd party edit: Not the same kind of depression. The opposite of a depressant is a stimulant, which lexapro is not. The liver thing is true though. Also, my personal experience is that I get drunk faster while on Lexapro.AnswerIn addition to the above, from my experience even small amounts of alcohol consumed while on Lexapro made me feel "weird" in a nonspecific but very disconcerting way. It would produce a moderate anxiety and lightheadedness. I could best describe it as being similar to a bad hangover minus the nausea. While some people are apparently able to drink while taking it, there's a good reason the pharmacy puts one of those "do not drink alcohol" warnings on this stuff.
The effects of alcohol intake are determines by controlled studies where people drink measured amounts of alcohol, and are then subject to various tests to determine how that amount affects them over time.This is necessary for two reasons. The effects of alcohol accumulate, so the only accurate way to test is for the subject to have one drink of a certain amount, then measure the results, along with the blood alcohol content (BAC) at that time.The other is that self-reporting of the effects of alcohol is notoriously inaccurate. For example, many people will tell you that they drive better after a couple of drinks, but everyobjective test of skills associated with driving after drinking will show otherwise.The first things that go when we drink are inhibitions, and the second is judgment. That's why lab tests are the only accurate way to go.
Alcohol has stimulating, depressing and mood altering functions that leave practically no circuit or system of the brain untouched. This range of effects is what sets alcohol apart from many other drugs. It acts as a stimulant when it directly stimulates those brain cells, which lead to feelings of pleasure and euphoria. It is a depressant when it slows the brain down and reduces tensions and worries. It can affect your judgment and make us things you would not usually do when sober. Alcohol acts as an anaesthetic when it shows down your reflexes and your coordinates. It can put you to sleep , it can induce a coma and it can kill. Alcohol's effects are dose related -the more alcohol you drink, the greater the effects that may occur.
Death can occur if alcohol dramatically changes blood pH levels. You see, blood has a very small pH range, and alcohol has acid-forming properties. When you drink too much alcohol, your blood pH levels increase dramatically, while your phosphate levels decrease, leading to death. If you are asking for long-term effects, alcohol could be a problem in the long run if it led to liver cancer and alcoholism.
People don't die from alcohol but from alcohol abuse. Whether directly or indirectly, there are far to many people who have died because of alcohol abuse. But as long as you consume alcohol responsibly it can contribute to better health and longevity. DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE, AS THIS IS HOW A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF THE DEATHS OCCUR
White Russian is an alcoholic drink and SHOULD BE AVOIDED during pregnancy. Alcohol causes many birth defects. Exposing the baby to alcohol during your pregnancy increases the chances of the baby having Fetal Alcohol Syndrome which refers to growth, mental and physical problems that may occur in a baby whose mother drank during her pregnancy. No amount of alcohol is considered safe during pregnancy.
AnswerTaken together Ambien and alcohol will have additive effects. In other words, Ambien will increase the effect of alcohol and alcohol will increase the effecs of Ambien. When taken by itself, Ambien is already known to cause behaviors almost identical to the behavior exhibited by a person who is guilty of driving while under the influence of alcohol. So when you add Ambien and alcohol together, the risk of these behaviors occurring becomes even greater. You also increase the risk of experiencing the other unwanted side effects that Ambien can produce by itself and also increase the duration of Ambien. Some of the side-effects of enhancing the potency of Ambien with alcohol are really bizarre. The good part is that, if you do experience them, you will probably not remember what you have done since the combined effect of both increases the probability that you will experience amnesia. The bad news is that, though you may not remember what you have done, you may wake up behind bars for the unconscious acts you committed while under the influence of this combined concoction.

No, you cannot drink while pregnant at any stage. Many doctors still allow it but Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Fetal Alcohol Effect are now the leading cause of mental retardation in this country. As little as a tablespoon of alcohol is all it takes to damage a growing fetus. Many people believe that if an infant does not have the facial features of FAS then they child is fine. This is not correct, as the damage is actually to the child's brain. The facial features only occur if drinking is during a very specific period in the first trimester. The brain damage can occur throughout pregnancy. Please research FAS/FAE and Fetal Drug Effect for further information.
If you have alcohol in your system, the probability is vanishingly small. Symptoms of drunkenness can occur from the effects of other drugs, as well as from some neurological and emotional disorders, alone or in combination with alcohol, so it is not possible to state a probability in those cases. There is an urban legend to the effect that certain digestive problems can generate enough alcohol to get you drunk without drinking. While some alcohol can be created in the digestive tract under certain conditions, only in rare cases would it even be detectable. It would not be enough to cause intoxication.
