    Hi. Alcohol withdrawal causes panic attacks, anxiety and depression. If you are on antidepressants they won't work if you're drinking alcohol. This can last a few days. It's probably best not to drink but if you do there is no way to stop the after effects unfortunately. There are vit c supplements you can buy which help( not allowed to actually say which as will get moderated!) and eating, drinking lots of water helps you recover more quickly. So you have to weigh up the pros and cons. 

    If you think you have a problem with alcohol though, you could go on the alcohol forum.

    Best wishes to you x

    Not really a good idea to drink but as you did. Drink a large bottle of gatorade and eat two bananas. If your stomach is okay and its just anxiety now take a b complex vitamin and two handful of cashews or nuts. Throughout the day just keeo drinking water to flush everything out of you. After twenty four hours your meds will work again, if your not on any and have some xanax tommorrow ..take one if anxiety is still a mess. It will calm down. Dont drink anymore its really not worth feeling so crappy. Maybe stay with just some red wine which is calming. Tomato juice is a good drink as well to have a glass or two that will coat tour belly and its good for you.

    I've noticed drinking is an easy thing to do when you.feel like this and it gets.bad becuse when I drink.I still think my thoughts and feel the same so them makes me keep on drinking and drinking then in the morning am in a really bad way so I have just stopped but when you do you feel like you have to drop everything because how you feel if you get that way find a hobby and if.you.have a really bad hangover the best way to help it.is two pain killers and a few bananas and lots of water or any pure drinks get a lode of vits
