   Panic the day after drinking alcohol--please help! (Anxiety board)

22nd June 2005
I am such a druggie, I take Xanax for everything, but seriously, I had a terrible hangover one day and I took a Xanax and felt 100% normal an hour later. I am extremely anxious about nausea and vomiting, thats what usually causes my panic attacks, so i absolutely cannot live with a hangover. it also helps you take a nap which sometimes is my only cure :)

Well....I noticed that no one on this post mentioned whether or not they were taking any medications. Here's what happened to me. I've been on 8MG of Prozac and 1MG of Xanax XR daily. Last night I went out to dinner with friends and had probably 3 glasses of Chardonnay and felt fine. This morning I feel nauseated, sweaty and anxious and it sucks....from reading the posts, I realize what I have done and you know what? It's soooo not worth it!!! Were any of you also on meds and drinking? I had cut out alcohol and caffeine but decided last night it would be OK for some reason....NOT!!!

Alcohol's effects are incredibly intensified with Xanax, I'm not sure about the anti-depressants but I know for sure it really intensifies the alcohol. I take Xanax and I can get drunk off one glass of wine where I used to be able to drink a whole bottle and be ok. I don't know about you, but Xanax also makes me very thirsty, so I wonder if it dehydrates you even further and thats why you get such bad hangovers??

The only think that I can do to solve this problem is take xanax on that day after I drink. If anyone can think of something better please let me know. I know now that i am depressed the day after i drink and that it is from drinking, and it took me a while before i finally figured it out. I hate the feeling but I do enjoy hanging out with my friends and drinkin on the weekends.

I don't drink very often but when I do sometimes I get panic attacks so I also take Ativan the day after and that stops them within 10/15 mins...but I usually try and wait till I really feel bad before taking one.

Well I'll be darn. I am going through this at this very moment. Went out last night, drank way to much and sitting at work right now, I am shaking, sweating and feel dizzy. I am thining about taking a Xanax, but seeing as I am already exhausted, I am scared i will fall asleep at my desk. I have never had a problem with panic after drinking until recently. I am not on daily meds anymore so maybe that is why. I do find that when I do drink, I drink alot more then I should because I am feeling anxious to begin with, so I start slamming drinks to take the edge off. (I know that isnt good) And now I want to punch myself for drinking so much because of how I feel right now. I just want to go home!

This is normal!!! im no doctor... [COLOR="Red"]REMOVEDbut most people (even who dont have anxiety) experience this. I do not remember what it is caused from ;) But, I, too have severe anxiety and it is AWFUL after I drink. I am sure that it is worse those of us who suffer anxiety...but it's nothing uncommon or anything to worry about. You just have to wait it out....drink tons of water to flush out the alcohol. Try sleeping....maybe a xanax if you are prescribed. Or just dont drink ;) Easier said than done...I know.!!!!!!!!
