Within limits, yes: Azithromycin can cause gastrointestinal irritation with abdominal pain, nausea, or cramping, and alcohol could make it worse. For most people, a couple of mixed drinks, wine, or beer aren't likely to be a problem, but go easy.

Don't know, but...: Since there are no double-blind, randomized control trials to answer this question, can't tell you for sure. However, the question that I have is - since an antibiotic is usually given only for a few days, if you don't feel like you can safely refrain from drinking alcohol for even that period, might you be struggling with an alcohol problem. Please discuss this with your doctor asap. ...Read more
Depends on…: The antibiotic: some like Flagyl (metronidazole) can interact with alcohol & cause marked nausea & vomiting. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) alone can cause nausea/vomiting even without alcohol. No drug interactions r listed for bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) amoxicillin, & alcohol, but it's never a good idea to mix alcohol with meds. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) & alcohol both affect the liver. Best to wait until you've finished antibiotics before drinking. ...Read more

Can I drink alcohol while taking Nitrofurantoin 100mg for a UTI? I wanna drink this weekend and my last day to take this antibiotic is Saturday.
No contraindication: However, since alcohol use may be associated with sexual disinhibition, and "athletic" or vigorous sexual activity is associated with UTI's in women, would exercise caution on that front. Alcohol does reduce our body's immune response to infections, and does have some interactions with some antibiotics (taking it with Flagyl can be dangerous), there is no problem with nitrofurantoin. ...Read more
If I am taking xifaxan (rifaximin) for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, is it okay to drink alcohol with it? Or will it adversely affect the antibiotic
Nope: It is generally very unwise to consume alcohol while on any antibiotic - but since your intestine is trying to recover from infection I wouldn't take the chance of causing any more irritation until fully healed. Stick to water - freshen it up with slices of cucumber as this has antioxidant properties and may help with some of the irritation. Http://www. Webmd.

I have bacterial pink eye. I just started my antibiotic eye drops yesterday. It's called tobramycin ophthalmic. Can I drink alcohol while on the eye d?
Be good to the body: If you're on antibiotics for something, it must mean you're trying to fight an infection. Drinking alcohol would therefore be counter-productive because this is actually a toxin, and can weaken the body. There may be some interactions with whatever medicine you're taking and the alcohol, so you have to watch out for that too. Best advice is to give it a rest for a few days and get better. ...Read more
Possible reaction: Some common antibiotics, like metronidazol (flagyl), trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazol (bactrim), and tinidazol (tindamax) can cause severe flushing, headache, nausea and vomiting, and elevated heart rate when combined with even a little alcohol. In general, the side effects of other antibiotics are similar to those of drinking, and might therefore be worsened by consuming alcohol. ...Read more
What kind infection?: Alcohol impairs the ability of the body to respond to infection, slowing down white blood cells and hurting their ability to eat up and kill germs. In addition, alcohol can reduce our immune response so that we don't make proper antibodies to germs. If you are talking 1-2 drinks per day, it wouldn't matter. If you are talking about more, DON'T. ...Read more
