Xanax and alchohol, tobacco

hi there - i am not an alchoholic. I take about .5mg of xanax once every 2 weeks at the most, a very small dosage to help me through certain situations. I prefer to only use it if I rarely have to. Now I was just wondering what the effects are of taking .5mg of xanax then consuming alchohol & tobacco (habits which are slowly being kicked, with the help of xanax!) say about 10 units of alchohol.

And what about taking xanax the next day, when you have a 'hangover' as they say.

yes i know everyone is going to tell me to stop drinking and smoking, but I am trying my best - its a slow process.

oh yeah, I have heard about this tablet called Calmlet, anyone know about this?

Please help..

Re: Xanax and alchohol, tobacco

Well I've never been a drinker myself so I can't really answer that, but I wouldn't think a drink every now and then would hurt you.
As for the smoking I took Xanax for years...have since weaned off...but I smoked when I took it and it didn't bother me at all.
I know some people say smoking makes them more anxious, but it never did that to me...same with coffee I could drink a whole pot and not get hyper at all..now Mountain Dew was another story..one can of that stuff and I was bouncing off the walls
I still don't touch that stuff

Re: Xanax and alchohol, tobacco

hi express,

xanax usually reacts with alcahol to make you feel more drunk, however your dose wont do much as its small, I think tobacco has no effect on xanax

As long as you don't have any asthma or breathing difficulties, I guess it couldn't hurt you.

Thumbs up Re: Xanax and alchohol, tobacco

I have very mild asthma - does xanax have an effect on asthmatics? Drank alchohol for the first time after talking half a xanax 0.5mg - was fine.

I always seem to get ***** attacks/anxiety after a night of heavy drinking and the xanax helps a lot to calm me down.
