Will you be hurt if you drink one beer while taking xanax (alprazolam)?

Will you be hurt if you drink one beer while taking xanax (alprazolam)?

No: Unlikely. Xanax (alprazolam) and alcohol can have additive sedative effects but a single beer with a single Xanax (alprazolam) is unlikely to cause serious problems. That said, don't take this combination and drive.

No: No. It is not a good idea. The combination of beer and a benzodiazepine or triazolobenzodiazepine is not a good one. There is compounded sedation between the two. 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..

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.

Not advisable: First of all you just asked me if it's possible to drink xanax (alprazolam). That alone makes me think that you're already intoxicated.

There are also other dangers associated with it such as the cessation of breathing. Please don't do it. And especially, do not drink and drive.

Not recommended: And the person you should be asking is the doctor who prescribed it. In general, alcohol should be avoided in people who are on other sedating drugs.

I just got diagnosed with CHF two weeks ago... I am on propanalol, PTU [hyperthyroid], and Xarelto. Can I drink 2 beers? I'm anxious and don't xanax

I just got diagnosed with CHF two weeks ago... I am on propanalol, PTU [hyperthyroid], and Xarelto. Can I drink 2 beers? I'm anxious and don't xanax

Avoid alcohol.: I hope you are well. You are on medications that interact with each other (propranolol and PTU) and adding alcohol would worsen the interactions. The effects of propranolol are increased by alcohol. Propranolol can worsen heart failure. PTU can also increase the effects of propranolol. I suggest that you have a medication review with your primary care professional, ASAP. I hope this helps.

If I drank half a beer an hour ago would it hurt to take xanax (alprazolam) tonight?

Not a good idea: 1/2 beer is probably not a big deal, but the effects of both can be magnified. At substantial doses, the combination can be deadly. In general you want to be sure not to drop medication doses in favor of alcohol. You may be able to avoid this problem if you discuss alternatives to Xanax (alprazolam) with your doctor. But, even then alcohol will have to be drunk in moderation.
