Im taking amoxicillin trihydrate for an operation I had 3 weeks ago for a fallopian tube removal. just wondering if its safe for me to have a few beer?

No: Alcohol is a poison and it never did anybody any good, ever, so stay away from it. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age. ...Read more

Is it safe to drink alcohol (one or two beers) while on amoxicillin and clavulanate capsules?

Is it safe to drink alcohol (one or two beers) while on amoxicillin and clavulanate capsules?

No guarantees: There's no major interaction with alcohol. That being said, when sick (the reason I'm assuming you are taking amox/clav) alcohol can delay recovery as well as interfere with productive rest/sleep. Amox/clav is broken down in part by the liver as is alcohol, so there is certainly potential for harm there especially with excess. I would avoid alcohol until feeling well and off antibiotics. ...Read more

Will I be able to drink beer while taking amoxacillin?

Will I be able to drink beer while taking amoxacillin?

No: I am always worried when people who are sick ask if they can drink while they're sick - this to me is a potential indicator of a drinking problem. You are on Amoxil (amoxicillin) for some kind of infection, and alcohol is not good for people with infections - it suppresses our immune system, makes it harder for white cells to find and eat bacteria. Alcohol has many drug interactions. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more
