Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

Lorazepam typically stays in the system for about 8 hours. Since you took it at 4:30PM, it should be out by around 1AM. If you don't take any more, you should be safe to drink a glass of wine at 6PM tomorrow.

Will there be any interactions if I had at 2 glasses of wine? The rest of the time I will be drinking non-alcohol sangria. I don't want to overdo it with the alcohol
