You cannot combine Xanax with alcohol, but many people due to stress do it and lose control of the mind. Bear in mind, it is dangerous. Xanax can only be obtained by prescription at, making it difficult to access. Very well helps fall asleep.

PHWC has also started working on the project “Working with Women-Phase 2” along with SAJIDA Foundation to orient workers on mental health and wellbeing. Additionally, PHWC has been working on another project with Terre Des Hommes (TDH) and Solidarites International in Cox’s Bazar and Teknaf, to provide psychosocial support to people working with the Rohingyas.
