Generally it's ok: Whilst many drugs should not be taken with alcohol antibiotics are not usually affected to a significant degree.

Usually: In moderation. Do not drink alcohol if you are taking flagyll ( Metronidazole ) as that can induce an antibuse like reaction.

Wait 24-48: To be safe and to let the antibx work most effectively, wait 24-48 hours, than you can drink etoh in moderation and responsibly only. Best wishes.
