Hi Lovelyone,

It's great that you're starting to feel better! The first few weeks on Lexapro can definitely leave you feeling a little out of it. The tiredness will probably go away in another 1-3 weeks. (It varies so much from one person to the next.)

Also, I've chosen not to drink alcohol on Lex. (I'm currently taking 20 mgs with 150 mgs of Wellbutrin.) But I asked my psychiatrist about it and he said that drinking small amounts isn't a big deal. You just have to be aware of your limits (i.e. stop drinking when your body tells you to stop) He also mentioned that Lex can increase your chances of getting hung over and it also makes drinking a little less fun because you get tired more quickly.

I hope this helps. Like I said, you should feel fine in another few weeks and drinking isn't a problem, just be careful.
