No: This is a dangerous and even potentially life-threatening combination, depending on your health, the dose of clonazepam, and how much you drink. Often alcohol abuse is the cause of the anxiety, and doctors who either do not ask about it, or were not given truthful answers, will prescribe benzodiazepines, sometimes with disastrous results (coma, brain damage, death). Talk to your doctor about it.
