In brief: Side effects
You risk increased over-sedation and breathing problems.
This can be a bad combination and you should always contact your doctor and follow their recommendations when mixing any medications.

In brief: Alcohol xanax (alprazolam)
A good doctor does not prescribe xanax (alprazolam) to people that drink, no matter how much.
Once an addict, always an addict, and doctors do not aggravate one by adding another substance for addiction. Both magnifies the drowsiness effects and loss of control on personal+social life. Anxiety leads to alcohol use then abuse. Xanax+ alcohol treats the symptom of anxiety, the disease worsens as is not treated.
