Customer Question

I was just prescribed Ativan. I took one last night. Should have read the interactions, but didn't. Had 5 shots of vodka 2 hours later. All day I have felt dizzy and a little nauseous. My pupils are still huge. It's 8:00 pm now. How long will this last?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

May last about 6 hours --usual peak action period of ativan.

Alcohol action also passes about 6-8 hours.

Please drink fluids and take adequate rest.
