How long do I wait to drink alcohol after finishing clindamycin?

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

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.

Can i drink alcohol a day after using cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) ovules?

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 ?

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 more

Clinda and alcohol: skip alcohol but not skip Clinda. ETOH make any med less efficient, BUT if you had Clinda for 4-5 days or longer the benefit is fully gained already and one evening alcohol and lose one dose will not make anything worse. Enjoy the party! ...Read more
