Brief Answer: Yes, Klonopin Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for using XXXXXXX Yes, Klonopin will help during alcohol withdrawal. Lamictal (Lamotrigine) is used to treat bipolar disorder. It is recommended not to drink alcohol while taking these medications because of drowsiness (additive effect). So avoid alcohol. Hope this answered your query and is helpful for you.
