Anxiety Home > Zanax and Alcohol

Were you looking for information about Xanax and Alcohol? Zanax and alcohol is a common misspelling of Xanax and alcohol.
 
Since Xanax® (alprazolam) and alcohol are both central nervous system depressants and can slow brain activity, it is generally recommended that you avoid combining the two. You may be more sensitive to the effects of alcohol if you are taking Xanax. Alcohol can also increase your risk of certain Xanax side effects, such as dizziness, memory problems, and drowsiness.
