Why You Should Not Drink Alcohol When Taking Klonopin or Xanax

I won’t spend long on this – this is more common sense than anything else. Klonopin, Xanax and Alcohol.

People drink alcohol when they are on Klonopin or Xanax to escape from it’s pain. Not a great idea. Actually, that is why people usually drink. I’m not trying to be a moralist here, but I have always wanted to be sober. To each their own. However, when a person is trying to get off klonopin, these symptoms will not go away if he/she drinks. The person will eventually sober to a bigger mess.

The big thing about this is that you don’t mix your meds (including your klonopin) with alcohol. This can downright dangerous. There has been a lot of people, including movie and rock stars that have mixed these together. A few have died from this – and I’m not kidding.

I believe the popular thing is to mix Xanax with alcohol. Xanax is a sister drug of Klonopin (I used to take it) and is more potent. When you drink while you have these medications in your system, your asking for trouble. Anything can happen, and as I cited above – even death.

So don’t be stupid. Don’t mix alcohol with Klonopin / Xanax or any other type of medications that’s in the “Benz” family – it’s a recipe for disaster.
