klonopin and alcohol can affect similar and the same receptors in the brain to cause you to be more relaxed and sleepy
benzodiazepines like Klonopin like alcohol, increase the efficiency of synaptic transmission of the neurotransmitter GABA by acting on its receptors.
Mixing benzodiazepines with alcohol is still very dangerous because both can affect Cl- channels in the brain and their effects can be additive and cause much more sedation and sleepiness and difficulty controlling muscles
you should not be driving after this
