What do you advise if I'm taking besivance (besifloxacin) for a conjunctivitis bacterial infection in my eye. can I drink alcohol?
Every time I get: this question, nobody ever says "can I have one drink, or drink a six pack." One or two occasional social drinks while being treated for an infection is unlikely to cause problems, but any larger amount or regular drinking is a bad idea. Alcohol impairs our immune function and ability to fight infections, and has drug interactions with a large number of meds, including some antibiotics. ...Read more

Can i drink alcohol (500ml - 1l) if i am on doxy + cipro (ciprofloxacin) or is it not recommended? (i am on my 3rd day treatment)
No: I am not sure you are being serious in asking whether drinking 1/2 liter to a full liter a day of some kind of distilled sprits is "recommended?" It isn't recommended for ANYBODY, let alone someone being treated for an infection. Since you are on 2 antibiotics, I will assume its a serious infection. Alcohol impairs our immune system and healing. This is a dangerous amount of alcohol. Stop now. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

My 24 year old daughter is entering a alcohol treatment center this monday. They do not have a bed and this is their best estima tion of when one will be available. She experiences significant withdrawl symtoms when she abstains from alcohol completely.Sh
Don't : Don't know the specifics of "significant withdrawal symptoms" that you mention (such as seizure, visual hallucinations). From a safety perspective she would best be seen by a doctor (on this weekend the emergency room for that matter) to cater temporary treatment to your daughter given the circumstances for now. There is always the risk of a breakthrough seizure or other serious withdrawals from alcohol with or without the continued use of alcohol or xanax (alprazolam)-like medications because the are a couple of things to consider too (such as sleep problems, amount of alcohol used, duration of alcohol misuse) plus i wouldn't detox someone on xanax (alprazolam) being that it is a very short acting sedative. In essence, err on the side of safety when the risk is great. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
