What should I avoid while taking Xanax?
Do not drink alcohol while taking Xanax. This medication can increase the effects of alcohol. Xanax may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert.
Grapefruit and grapefruit juice may interact with Xanax and lead to potentially dangerous effects. Discuss the use of grapefruit products with your doctor.
Hi camoprincess, I may get barked a new hair-do for this, as I'm going against what the consensus says, and what medical literature says.
IF you are benzo tolerant, been taking xanax for a long time, I think it would be OK to have ONE drink, and I'm not talking about a big ol' grey goose martini either, just one shot of liquor, one glass of wine, one glass of beer.
Xanax has a short half life, so it technically should be out of your system by the evening.
Yet, think of all the people that have died, recently, by mixing booze & benzos! The media has covered many deaths of the famous... just a reminder.
