> I just started Klonopin .5mg three times a day (morning, 3PM, bedtime) and I'm standing up in a wedding next weekend.
> Anyone know if it's okay and safe to have one beer or one drink of liquor while on Klonopin?

hello there, chemist here...from a ``will it damage my liver/brain/etc.,'' the answer - if you truly stick to the one-drink - is a resounding no. and this depends on concurrent meds (which you may or may not be taking), hepatic impairment (which you have not specified evidence of or denied), and things including will you have a full meal on board, how many times are you interested in that occassional *one* drink while on klonopin, and so forth...using my subjective definition of ``safe'' in re: other aspects, the answer ranges from ``i wouldn't advise it'' to ``why bother with the booze, take an extra 0.5 mg of klonopin instead and have a club soda.'' this is my opinion. the memory problems will be exacerbated by the booze, but you probably won't be swinging from the chandelier, nor slumping off when it's your turn to toast the newlyweds. however, alcohol and drugs from the class from which klonopin hails do not mix favorably....so there you have my take of it. if you stick to the champagne toast, you'll live to tell about it, sans hangover and obnoxious behaviour. if you have a beer with your pals every month or two, i'd still put you in the safety zone...if you add more booze to the mix, it will be the best wedding you never remembered attending....all the best, chemist
