Not a good idea.: You are taking an antibiotic because you have an infection. Your body needs to do its best to fight the infection. Do not interfere with that by drinking alcohol, a liver toxin. Also, doxycycline can easily upset your stomach, if you are not careful, and alcohol may make that happen sooner. Hold off drinking till you are well.
