Our expert says:
Its actually rarely a good idea to mix alcohol with ANY meds. Firstly, Xanor SR is a long-acting, Slow Release ( hence SR ? ) version of an over-used benzodiazepine, a sedative tranquilizer ( like Valium ) ; combined with aolcohol, you would be likely to be more drink that you'd expect for the amount you drink. And that wouldn't be helpful.
Combining alcohol with antidepressants is worse, apart from ALSO making you more drunk than you intend, it can indeed cancel out the antidepressant benefits, which is a pointless thing to do. Now, when you take antidepressants regularly ( the only useful way to take them ) you may not feel any particular obvious benefits, because they work more subtly, and one night's drinking probably won't undo all the work its been doing so far, so stay on the meds and off the booze, and you should be feeling better before long
