4 doctors agree

In brief: Probably not.

It depends on how much alcohol you drank, and how much xanax (alprazolam) you planned to take.
It also depends on how fast your liver metabolizes the alcohol. It is generally not a good idea to mix benzodiazepines w/ alcohol as they can cause drowsiness & breathing to slow or stop & in high doses can cause coma.
