Hi everyone,

I am on a maximum of 1 mg per day Xanax which I divide up. I take .25 mg in the early afternoon, .25 mg in the evening when things get more stressful and .5 mg before bed. This seems to work well for my anxiety and insomnia. (I take Celexa in the morning). The Xanax really helps my symptoms and the doc seems to want me on it indefinitely for my anxiety disorder.

I asked my doc if it was OK if I drank a glass or two of red wine (or a glass or two of beer) in the evenings and he said it would be fine. He just said not to drink too much or get drunk or anything.

However, I wonder if he is wrong? I've heard bad things about Xanax and alcohol. What are the real risks for someone taking the dose that I take who wants to have two servings of alcohol in the evenings? I do enjoy a leisurely drink and I have read it is healthy for the heart. I just don't want to cause damage.

For example, someone told me that drinking and taking pills at the same time can cause an this true?

Or, that drinking with Xanax can kill you by depressing your respiration and nervous system.

But does this happen with such a small amount? Advice, please!
