Xanax the day after drinking
« on: February 21, 2014, 10:59:31 AM »
Hey all~ i was wondering if anyone has taken a low dose of prescribed Xanax (.5 mg) the morning after having a few drinks? My anxiety is always a little worse the day after drinking so I try not to drink often but is taking Xanax 12 hours after having three drinks dangerous?

Yes, it can be. Here's why.

It shouldn't be as you will have metabolized most of the alcohol by then. Plus, the main danger in taking both is they each tend to suppress activity in the brainstem which, among other things, produces the breathing reflex. During sleep they may together suppress the breathing reflex to the point of asphyxiation. This is unlikely to be a problem for someone fully awake and moving around.

NOTE: I'm not a doctor, and particularly not yours, so there may be factors I'm unaware of. Therefore all advice is of a general nature and you should consult your doctor before following any of it, especially before changing med doses.
