I had a half pill xanax 0,5 and i had two meals and drank two bottles of water can i drink alcohol, if yes how much
With Xanax ? NO , you better avoid , take alcohol tomorrow, it always comes .
 
how soon can I drink after taking.5 MG of xanax for the first time ever. had 2 anxiety attacks two days in a row for the 1st time as well.
Since xanax is metabolised fairly slowly. It can last for up to 72 hours in our system. I would wait for at least a day before taking alcohol (if it is really needed). I would recommend that you stay away from alcohol since you are most likely to be on everyday xanax. Regards
 
I have panic attacks while I sleep I am 37yrs old ive had them since I was like my early teens how I help prevent them
