    Mixing benzodiazepines with alcohol is always a bad idea. You should not drink while using hypnotics, Keep that in mind.

    Good way to lose your freedom. But I do not drink alcohol because I HAVE to take Xanax daily. Mixing Xanax and alcohol is deadly and I advise everyone to read the warnings on the label. And please please, learn from someone who has to take it for a sleeping disorder.

    When I took xanax back in the day, I drank quite a bit generally. Until I had a tolerance and was taking it daily it very well could cause amnesia and blackouts. But once I had developed tolerance for the xanax there were no further blackouts or symptoms unless I really spiked the dosage to more than a dozen If you do decide to mix alcohol and benzos don’t go to nightclubs ,bars or public places. Unless you are in complete control of your surroundings.

    Im in the same boat here.At one point in my life I used to drink around 1 1/2 litre of scotch whiskey a day, it got to a point where I was using it for both pain relief in combination with oxycontin, and to sleep (I am a complete insomniac) … I then turned to benzo’s only to cut down on the alcohol and oxycodone, and have a proper solution to my sleep issues. With the help of xanax I am down to around half a bottle of Whiskey in the evening (used to get pissed every lunch time at work too to help me manage my busy schedule) plus 2-3 x 2mg xanax pills a day. I have never had a problem with mixing them, but thats probably my alcohol tollerance, I have at times (such as the office christmas party last year) drank a lot of alcohol and been on benzo’s and other recreational drugs so won’t recommend. you may have certain regrets the next day B-)

    Depends on tolerance, drinking 2 six packs of coronas , couple of percs and three bars of snickers and still able to function. just me. but if you did this the first time your probably in the hospital getting your stomach pumped.

    No, I do not drink alcohol because I HAVE to take Xanax, oxycodone and other pain meds. Mixing Xanax and alcohol is deadly and I advise everyone to read the warnings on the label. And please please, learn from someone who has to take it for an anxiety disorder. If you don’t need it, don’t take it. The withdrawals when you quit can be a nightmare. You could get addicted and how are you going to taper or get help if a doctor hasn’t prescribed it? If you don’t need it thank your lucky Stars and move on. I am moving to Mexico soon myself.
