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 system and healing. This is a dangerous amount of alcohol. Stop now. ...Read more

Nothing helpful: As you have probably been told by your physician, drinking alcohol with medications like lithobid, depakote, and seroquel (quetiapine) is not recommended. It will accentuate central nervous system depression, leaving you sedated or worse. Additionally, alcohol may destabilize your sleep and mood further.
