Probably okay, but..: As a one time thing, it's probably okay. But if i were your physician i would be concerned about how often this is happening and whether this is part of a pattern that indicates risk of developing tolerance, physical dependence and/or addiction. Please make sure you discuss this with your doctor.

Xanax (alprazolam): Using xanax (alprazolam) together with alcohol can increase nervous system side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking and judgment. Avoid alcohol while being treated with xanax (alprazolam).

NO!: Xanax (alprazolam) is a controlled substance and only available by prescription; any website selling this without a prescription would be in violation of federal law and subject to prosecution.

Little as possible: While Xanax (alprazolam) can be very helpful in the short term, it should only be used as a rescue medicine and not be taken on a regular basis. As a general rule, if you are needing more than 1 tablet per week for more than a month or so, that is a sign that a longer-lasting medication should be added to allow cutting down on the xanax (alprazolam).

i agree with Dr Bragg. xanax is a poor choice for long term control of anxiety. it should be used rarely or as a rescue medication.

A 22-year-old male asked:

Why do I feel so sluggish when im not taking my xanax (alprazolam)?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Pamela Pappas
Psychiatry 42 years experience
Puzzling: Xanax (alprazolam) itself has a sedating effect, rather than an activating one. So it's odd that you would feel more sluggish not taking it, than taking it. It would be a good idea to talk with the physician who prescribed your xanax, (alprazolam) and see what else is happening with you. Perhaps other medicines are on board now that could be adding to this effect.
