At the pharmacodynamic level, ethanol can enhance the deleterious effects of sedatives, certain anxiolytics , sedative antidepressants and antipsychotics, and anticholinergic agents, on performance.
Mechanisms of lethal interactions between moderate overdoses of ethanol and anxiolytics / opiates / sedatives are poorly understood.

anxiolytics … alcohol at least twice a week (odds ratio=2.42; 95% confidence interval=1.30-4.51), to be binge drinkers (odds ratio=1.86; ….43) and to be heavy alcohol consumers (odds ratio=2.22; 95% confidence interval= 1.13-4.39) than men not using psychotropics.

Central ethanol exposure appears to exert antianxiety effects that attenuate apneic disruptions but under the state of withdrawal, the cues associated with such effects elicit an opposite reaction.

High ethanol intake is well known to induce both anxiolytic and anxiogenic effects, in correlation with chromatin remodeling in the amygdaloid brain region and deficits in cell proliferation and survival in the hippocampus of rodents.
