Can I drink alcohol while on 0.5 mg of Klonopin (Clonazepam)?

I am currently taking 0.5 mg of Klonopin (Clonazepam). I have been taking it for the past month. I had also taken 2 mg of Haldol (Haloperidol) for the past month. I have stopped the Haldol three days ago.

I last took the Clonazepam at 8 a.m. this morning. I will not take any medication for the whole night. I'm going to be going out to a bar at 6 p.m. tonight.

I want to have three pints of beer. The three pints of beer will not be drunk in a binge manner ... probably one every 30 minutes ... i may drink a fourth, so it may bring the total to 4 beers in 2 hours.

My psychiatrist told me I can have a drink or two, and I also read online that it's not good to drink while on these medications.

I was wondering if my idea to drink 3 or 4 beers tonight will be OK?

Any prior experience with this medication and drinking is definitely beneficial.
