Ive also been on lexapro for many years and I drink heavily once or twice a month and I haven’t had any issues there.
Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: Alcohol (contained in alcoholic beverages) (ethanol), Lamictal (lamotrigine)
Using lamoTRIgine together with ethanol may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking, judgment, and motor coordination. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with lamoTRIgine. Do not use more than the recommended dose of lamoTRIgine, and avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medication affects you. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
