I never drink and am having some friends over. I would NEVER GO PAST 2 just wondering before this party if that's even ok. We maybe have time for friends a few times a year lately lol. New house blah blah... lol. just want to ask before I do anything thanks!
It is generally recommended that you avoid drinking alcohol during treatment with Alprazolam. Alcohol can not only increase your risk of certain Xanax side effects, but it may also worsen mental illness in people with anxiety or panic disorder. Since Alprazolam and alcohol are both CNS depressants, they can both slow the activity of the brain, which increases your risk of serious reactions.
Please take care, best wishes!
Hello Terica. I agree with Rajive. The problem is how you might react as an individual. The two when taken together, are really going to sedate you. Don't forget, you are on the ER and the xanax, at the dose you're taking will still be your system. I'd not mix the two. Benzodiazepines and alcohol are a dangerous combination at any time, regardless of how few and less of either one. Best to you,
Hi terica - I saw your post on another question, where you were relating to the depression & aloneness someone was feeling, as well as this post & am concerned that you are not fully accepting your own admission of alcoholism. Once we are at that point, we can never again "safely" drink "just one or two". I've been in a 12 step program for 23 yrs, and at one point, thought that I could do just that! After 6 yrs, I thought the same thing... and, after several months of drinking "normally", the insanity of the disease came back, more powerfully than ever! I'm not judging, just very concerned that you're maybe not being 100% honest with yourself or fully convinced about how devastating this disease (of isolation) can be. Please try to go to a few months of meetings, and/or maybe see a therapist just to be doubly sure of your disease before taking that first drink.
Plus, it will help with any loneliness or depression you may be feeling. It feels very nice to have a few good friends, who drank like you say you once did! So, good luck & hope you find out the truth about your condition, either way. It can really fools us, if we're not prepared with a good support system! Blessings. Jillian
