Why You Should Avoid Mixing Xanax And Wine
Many individuals enjoy an evening glass of wine, while they are currently taking prescription Xanax. There are many drug interactions with alcoholic beverages, which is why you should avoid alcohol consumption altogether, when taking prescription drugs.
One of the side effects of Xanax is drowsiness, but when taken with wine the drowsiness will increase dramatically, because wine also causes drowsiness. It will also increase the risk of accidents occurring, while under the influence of Xanax and wine.

Alprazolam definitely increases the neurotransmitter or brain chemicals, which will alter the thinking process. While it is already risky to operate a vehicle, when taking Xanax, wine consumption will surely increase these risks.
Altered Thinking Process
