Taken klonopin, lunesta, zoloft medication at the same time. Is it safe to drink alcohol?

I have a question about Zoloft , Lunesta and Klonopin . I took around 1.5 mg of Klonopin around five PM CST (give or take one-two hours, it s 11:20 PM now) one Lunesta (no idea about dosage) and around 100 mg of Zoloft, again at around five PM. Is it fine if I have two-three beers now or will there be severely adverse affects?

Both Klonopin and Lunesta act as sedatives and therefore, should not be taken with alcohol, due to risk of adverse effects like excessive sedation, respiratory depression etc. Also 1.5 mg of Klonopin is not a small dose, so it is better to avoid alcohol. There should not be any problem with Zoloft.

Best wishes.
