Can i drink one alcoholic drink while taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) antibiotics? It's only one alcoholic drink through all of the process of taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) antibiotics.

No: Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is already a form of amoxil, it just has an additional component that Amoxil alone does not have. The additional component is called clavulanate potassium a 'beta-lactamase inhibitor'. This addition keeps certain bacteria from inactivating the antibiotic. While some bacteria can neutralize amoxil, they cannot fight off Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) with it's special clavulanate potassium addition. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
