Mary,
The reason for the "stop breathing" part of Jan's post was because the original poster said she was taking a massive amount of benzo - equivalent to 300-400mg. of valium! that is enough to choke a horse. Alcohol on top of that, if that was the dosage, would make a person comatose.

Yours is a totally different case. You should talk with your doctor about your small amount of alcohol. Many people who take very small doses of benzos can tolerate a bit of alcohol, however you are on other meds and only your doctor can evaluate your situation we are not doctors here. Just my two cents worth.
Best to you,
Val

> Forgive me, I have a hard time following ALL the posts on a thread, including this one. But, one of my meds is Restoril (a Benzo, right?) I take it jst before bed About 10 or 11pm, but I DO drink alcohol, 1-2 glasses wine or beer between 5pm and 8pm. Sp, what do you think?? I know you suggested non-acoholic before but how bad do you think my regime is? Will I stop breathing????
