Anxiety worsened by drinking alcohol

Does anyone suffer the day after having a couple of glasses of wine or beer with worsened anxiety?  I am in a particularly stressful period of my life and have suffered with anxiety for all of my adult life.  I had three glasses of wine (approximately) yesterday evening and now my anxiety is through the roof.  Can someone please help/advise?  Thank you.

Absolutely.

Alcohol is one of the worst things for anxiety, especially in excess.  One night of indulgence can easily lead to DAYS worth of anxiety, not to mention even feelings of depression.

I would recommend steering clear of it completely, until your anxiety is better managed.

Do not drink exp when on meds unless you want more anxiety.

Yes!! I'm the same way. If I drink a few beers my heart starts pounding as soon as I go to bed. It's the worst feeling ever!! I like to have a drink here and there and I feel as if I can't anymore.

Alcohol  will intensify anxiety when the buzz wares off.  I did some heavy drinking and went to bed waking up in the worst panic attack ever.
