Benzos and drinking

Recommended Posts

Last night I had about 15mg of diazepam and two beers, which was my first time drinking since new years. Today i've felt a bit lethargic and sort of out of it a bit (is the best way to describe it). Does this happen to anyone else? I wish I could stop drinking entirely but in N.Ireland it's just about the only way to be social as there's so little to do...

I find it better to drink without benzos, and then have the benzo the next day to help with the hangover anxiety.

 

I have drank with benzos before and it can get real messy, real quickly.... I blacked out for 6 hours once, but was still awake... Causing trouble and getting thrown out of pub after pub.

 

Be careful.

I'm not going to lie... I do this a couple times a week.    1 or 2 .5mg xanax and 2 or 3 beers and goodbye anxiety.  But yes, be careful!!!!!!  For me, if I exceed 1 mg xanax and 4 drinks it's blackout time for me.  It's only happened a couple times but to be on the safe side, like Jay said, try to avoid if you can.

Had a few friends who died of this combo in their sleep. That's why I wouldn't recommend it. Tried it once when I had some Ativan (0,5 mg used) and didn't like it, it increased the DP/DR and was just a bad drinking experience after 4-5 beers.
