I' am taking clindamycin for an infection that is going to be treated my my dentist. Is it okay to drink alcohol?
Very short 1/2 life: Clindamycin is out of your system w/in hours of the last pill and there is no danger from the combo in any case. The very important reason NOT to combine them is the reduction in antibiotic effectiveness. You want the effects to be optimal but after the drug is finished and out of your system that's over. So, drink moderately (always!) and you should be okay. Especially if the original issue's ok. ...Read more
Is it safe to drink alcohol if you are taking clindamycin ? If so does the amount you drink make a difference?
Probably safe butttt: If you are on antibiotics, it is best not to be drinking while on the med and with an infection. Alcohol is a depressant and can affect the white cells via the bone marrow. One drink is not what I am referring to. It's just best to get well and then drink responsibly. ...Read more

Recovering from allergic reaction to clindamycin. Been off of it for 48 hours. Can I have a few beers? Or will alcohol make the rash worse?
Can't say: the prescribing doctor (could also be a DO or an RN-NP) or the dispensing pharmacist should be your first advisors in this kind of question, not a stranger online who does not know your history (like whether you have had alcohol abuse), or whether you are on other meds that might severely interact with alcohol (like flagyl/metronidazole). Also, alcohol doesn't help you fight infection or heal. ...Read more

I was prescribed Clindamycin (MIP600 capsule) before root canal treatment. With massive toothache can I combine with painkillers and alcohol ?
Bad Idea: Ok to take the painkillers - take with at least 700ml water or other non-alcoholic beverage. Skip the alcohol or you might vomit and lose the effect of the meds. Be wise and give it a day or 2 before the alcohol. The root canal is the only thing which is going to solve the problem. Follow the post-op instructions. Best of luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
