Not trying to preach here but us bipolars are the last that should be drinking while taking any meds. As for Xanax ;and having memory problems, I take Ativan and if I don't get enough sleep I have the same problem and I don't drink so I am not much help except to say give up the few drinks at night and see if that hejps your memory problem.
