Could you tell me what happens if you drink alcohol while on augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate)?
Hi.. Can you please tell me how long augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) antibiotic stay in your system after the last does? When is it safe to drink alcohol after last dose??

Best to take it easy on yourself. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A little bit.: A small amount of alcohol should be okay, if you have normal liver function and are not taking any other medications or using any other recr. substances. Too much alcohol or liver disease or mixing meds may cause all sorts of problems, not just with Primolut-N (norethisterone).
