Former alcoholic was prescribed Lexapro for depression, she said she accidentally took 2 lexapro's... i think she drank. Could she be telling the truth?
Hi, m! It depends somewhat on the dosage she takes, but an extra tablet isn't much. Large overdoses rarely cause symptoms; in combination with alcohol it could cause some dizziness, sweating and nausea.
Even recovering alcoholics can be very sensitive to confrontation, so be very careful with this issue.
Best wishes, WCV
