It sounds like a safe cocktail to me. The XL version is a very smooth releaser of the drug and I believe the hazards of seizure with WB were primarily associated with the immediate release formulations and doses *above* 300mg/day, and you are taking half that. The question my pdoc asked me had to do with eating disorders and alcohol use (the two risk factors which were stat. higher for seizure incidence). If you don't have an eating disorder and you keep your alcohol in moderation there shouldn't be any trouble. BTW, the alcohol thing has to do with *withdrawal* from the alcohol (i.e.-next day hangover from several drinks), which in itself reduces the seizure threshold quite a bit.
