mixing with alcohol?

I'm going out this weekend and will probably end up drinking. I'm on lamictal, abilify, and ativan. Does anyone know the interactions mixing those with alcohol? Any help would be great thanks!

if you are planning on drinking dont take those drugs the night before or the day of. Know that you are risking serious psychiatric symptoms, im sure you are not on those drugs for no reason.

Very true, I've done some research and definitely won't be drinking on them! Thanks!

I drink on Abilify and have no noticeable side effects but each person is different.
