    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.

    I mean that it will hammer you. Possibly even 1 drink. In this case (and there are a few instances where a drink or two are OK), and with these meds, my advice is NO.*

    You'll be fine if you drink a few beers, it just may feel like you had a dozen of them.

    I think he means hammered as in hopefully someone tapes a tennis ball to your back so you don't choke on your own vomit.

    You can drink...I wouldn't recommend it. Just hold off. You'll live.

    Please don't and if you already have don't do it again.


    I was given wonderful advice like that 20 years ago by my psychiatrist and it almost killed me-you also don't sound like you are having a "drink or two"-don't do it.

    Why would you take that chance? That's really stupid.

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

    From http://www.drugdigest.org/DD/Interac...,4109,,00.html
    ALCOHOL may interact with CLONAZEPAM
    Although the cause of this potential interaction is not fully understood, intolerable or otherwise undesirable side effects may occur when clonazepam is taken with alcoholic beverages or alcohol-containing products (such as some cough syrups and elixirs). Potential side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, blurred vision, headache, and nervousness. Because the combination of clonazepam and alcohol (ethanol) may impair your judgment and/or reflexes, it may be dangerous to drive or to perform tasks which require you to be alert after taking these together. It would be advisable to avoid consuming alcohol while you are taking clonazepam. Discuss this potential interaction with your healthcare provider at your next appointment, or sooner if you think you are having problems.


    This interaction is well-documented and is considered moderate in severity.

    This is bringing back very bad memories for me.

    Any doctor who would suggest it's OK to drink on meds like this-run fast the other way-I speak from very bitter experience.

    Honestly, I can't believe this question was even asked. I was tempted to give a flippant response, but thought better of it. It's not really a joking matter, especially if someone gets hurt.

    of course you can,

    we did it all the time for fun, and much larger doses and all sorts of pharmies.

    you'll just get extra messed up - sort of like being stoned and drunk

    be careful how much you drink, it takes alot less to get you retarded

    Use alcohol cautiously. Alcohol may increase drowsiness and dizziness while taking Klonopin (clonazepam) . Alcohol may also increase the risk of having a seizure.... after reading this i wouldnt

    My friends takes Klonopin for depression and she drinks. She has passed out a few times that I know of. I wouldn't do it if I were you.

    George would do it.
