Brief Answer:
Ativan for flying

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You are scheduled to fly later today and you are afraid that after drinking last night that you shouldn't take the ativan. It will be OK to take the ativan today before flying. Because you also took a dramamine you maybe more sleepy after taking the ativan.

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
