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.

Exactly how much beer are we talking about, and does the prescriber of your Klonopin (clonazepam) know about it? If not, they NEED to know, and soon. ...Read more
