Beer and Anxiety worse
« on: June 19, 2014, 12:33:42 PM »
Had 4 beers last night. It's really not a lot of beer they are bud lights. Ate dinner. Went to bed woke up at 3 am feeling completely dizzy and anxious. Woke up at 7 for work and anxiety through roof and Xanax helped minimally as I am tapering off Xanax! Does beer mess with serotonin or something? Is this normal for anxiety personel to get affected like this? I can not drink a beer ever again?

Alcohol makes anxiety worse and you are not supposed to take it with Xanax. I would not be drinking right now. It's gonna make it all worse for you.

Understand the drugs you're taking because you're playing with fire.

Watch out valleyplayer42.  Alcohol(ethanol) and benzos are a bad mix as they work on the same areas of the brain and in combination can suppress the breathing reflex in the brain.  I never felt good drinking after the initial high, messed with my body in a bad way and never had a satisfying sleep after having multiple drinks.  Take care

Thanks guys, I don't try to get a high or anything fr this. I just like to have a few beers before dinner and a few hours after Xanax and I can't even do that.

I've been going through my HA for exactly a year now. I havent really drank but when i do, I sure feel it the next day. A couple weeks ago, i decided to celebrate the ending of school, so i drank the most that I have since my HA and depression kicked in (so the most in about a year). The next morning was hell. My legs and arms shook really bad, i was even having trouble eating my food with my fork (stabbed myself in the face with my fork). Every time i stood up form standing, i felt a horrible case of vertigo. The room wouldn't necessarily spin, but i was extremely light headed and felt like i was tipping over, but whenever I was seated, this sensation never occurred. Again all this happened AFTER  i drank. It's been about 2 weeks since, and still somewhat not 100%, but definitely a lot better. I must say, it is very unnerving when it happens, and definitely makes you question the doctors when they say there is nothing wrong with you.
