Yes...: It's possible to die from drinking alcohol all by itself, if you drink enough. It's more hazardous to drink on top of Klonopin (clonazepam), since it acts like alcohol in some ways. It's also more risky to drink on top of antidepressants, as the risk of seizures increases (and the antidepressant won't work as well). "possible" to die doesn't mean it's likely, but why risk it?
