Clindamycin; EtOH: There are no reported interactions between Clindamycin and alcohol; so you may indulge in moderation. However, if you take other medicines, they may interact with either or both the antibiotic & alcohol. Always best to avoid alcohol when taking any medication since it may irritate the stomach.

No: Alcohol can make antibiotics less effective, but before imbibing check with whoever gave you the rx. Also note, before having dental work, that alcohol can promote bleeding.
