How long after taking 0.25 mg Xanax (alprazolam) can I drink large amounts of beer?

How long after taking 0.25 mg Xanax (alprazolam) can I drink large amounts of beer?

The two do not mix: If a doctor recommended xanax (alprazolam) to you, it is likely you suffer from some type of anxiety. Alcohol will make it worse. Also, xanax (alprazolam) and alcohol do not mix. They just make you more sedated, you can end up addicted to both and your anxiety will actually get much worse. My advice: treat the anxiety and stop drinking. Ever considered aa? I think it could help you. A lot. ...Read more

Is it okay to drink one beer and take a xanax (alprazolam)?

Is it okay to drink one beer and take a xanax (alprazolam)?

You could inadvertently drink yourself under the table with just one beer. Then there are the risks of driving when intoxicated even if your blood alcohol level is low you can be arrested for driving under the intoxicating influence of two substances.. ...Read more

Only newer kind: The new-generation antihistamine such as Claritin (loratadine) or Allegra possess virtually no sedating effect and i don't see any problem with it. I do caution however that a rare individual may still get drowsiness from them even though in studies the incidence is no higher than taking a sugar pill. Thus try it first before you combine alcohol with it. ...Read more
