I wonder if the alcohol will work counter productively?
I JUST started Xanax because of insomnia. There were so many warnings about using alcohol while on it I won't even take NyQuil unless it is the gel caps without alcohol in them. My thoughts would be a resounding NO, don't mix them or use alcohol while on Xanax.
Best of luck and health and stay safe! tc
I have taken .5 milligram of xanax and had 3 beers at home before - dinner party situation and had conversations with people (completely lucid I am told) that I don't even vaguely remember the next day. I wouldn't recommend this at all. I have a pretty high alcohol tolerance that 3 beers shouldn't have touched and a pretty high tolerance to pain medications (narcotics) because of a bum knee so I am assuming it was the xanax mixed with it that did this. Definitely don't go out to a bar or anything and mix these two or the results could be disastrous!
DO NOT last week I took a Xanax and forgot I took it so I had a mixed alcohol drink , Hennessy and juice to be exact , I went to sleep in public twice then after that I was a walking zombie it was like I left my own body I completely blacked out and do not remember anybody or anything people had to tell me what I did and where I went the even more scary part is people said I was acting completely normal they did even know I was zoned out , reality sent in when I got behind the wheel from God knows where and ended up driving on the wrong side of the road where I got into a minor crash I don't even remember driving please do not mix alcohol with Xanax
Hi, everybody is different, and although some people can mix alcohol with Xanax & experience little to no side effects, overall this combination should be avoided. You should never attempt to drive when drinking alcohol, even more should this be adhered to when mixing alcohol with Xanax. The main symptoms you may experience with this combination are confusion, drowsiness, dizziness and impairment of judgement... you could find yourself in a dangerous place
