3 doctors agree

In brief: Whoa Nelly,

I wouldn't take the xanax (alprazolam) if you just had 3 alcoholic drinks.

In brief: What did......

Your doctor advise you as to how often that you could take your xanax (alprazolam).
Having two drinks is almost the same as taking a xanax (alprazolam), best to discuss with your doctor.

Three drinks at dinner. Hmmmm? Are you sure alcohol isn't your problem and the cause of your anxiety?
