Not advisable: The alcohol will still be available after you recover. Some of the antibiotics are detoxified by the same liver pathway increasing possible side effects of the medications. Wish you speedy recovery.

Would avoid this: There is an antibiotic called Flagyl which you cannot consume alcohol. How about avoiding alcohol until you finish your course of antibiotics.
