In brief: No

I'm guessing those med bottles tell you to avoid alcohol while taking them, right? Not a good idea to mix alcohol with any drug that affects your mood.
Combing alcohol with these drugs could result in overdose situations. Talk to your doctor about this. Excessive drinking can result in increased anxiety and worsen the problem.

In brief: No!

In general, anxiety medication intensifies the effects of alcohol.
Alcohol causes falls, car accidents, and death. Just don't do it.
