Starting Lamictal, how scared should I be about SJS?

I'm being prescribed Lamictal for a neurological condition by one doctor (a neurologist), but my primary is scaring the crap out of me about the possibility of SJS (8/1000). Should I be terrified? Has anybody had experience with this? I feel like these odds are very small, but I've had some weird reactions before to medications so, yeah, I'm scared. I wish I'd never Googled it!

Mixing Xanax and alcohol

How long after taking .25 Mg or .5 Mg of Xanax should I wait before drinking any alcohol? I've taken Xanax frequently over the years to treat anxiety, fear of flying, etc. and never had any problems. [more inside]

Claritin + Benadryl

Is it safe to mix 24 hour Loratadine (Claritin) with 25-50 Diphenhydramin HCl (Benadryl)? My allergies are killing me and the loratadine does not seem to be doing the job.
