I'm scared.

Aug 27, 2000

I'm scared my mother should not be drinking while taking a medication by the name of "XANAX" because she seems to be asleep all day every single day. Is it safe?

Response from Mr. Shernoff

Your question is a very valid one. I urge you to telephone the doctor who wrote the prescription for the Xanax and tell him or her what your concerns are and why. It can be dangerous for someone to mix alcohol and Xanax.

Michael Shernoff, MSW

Is it true?
