In brief: Alcohol not helpful.

It has been my experience that antidepressant medication does not work well, if at all, in the presence of alcohol.
Also, as i see it, a combination of alcohol and Klonopin (clonazepam) is always contraindicated due the same brain receptors being affected and due to the high potential for addiction to both, especially when there is a personal or family history of alcohol abuse.
