First of all, I'd like to say "Hi" as I'm newo the site, and it's nice to know that there is place out there were people can relate to and help each other out.
I'm a 30 year old man, 6ft 1" and weigh around 187lbs (13.5 stone). I've recently started taking lorazepam (ativan as I believe it's called in USA) for anxiety issues. I only take the lorazepam when I'm feeling extremely anxious, pretty much only once a month at present.
Yesterday at around 6.30pm I was going to an event so I took 1.5mg of lorazepam and then stupidly ended up having a full night out drinking alcohol. I had quite a lot to drink: beer, vodka red bulls, sambuca etc.
I can't really remember the night out and have been extremely hungover today with two bouts of vomiting. However I'm more concerned by the fact it's now 7pm and I don't feel any better, and can't really eat or drink much. After googling 'Ativan and alcohol' and reading stories of people dying in their sleep or stopping breathing among other issues when combining the two, I am very concerned that something bad is going to happen. Can anyone advise if I'll be ok or if I should go to accidents and emergencies or something to check or if I'll be ok and I'm over-thinking it?
Sorry if this seems silly, I'm just really worried? I know how stupid I've been and really regret it. Any advice or help will be grearly appreciated please?
