Took single dose of 2g tinidazole for giardiasis 28 hours ago. Is it ok to drink alcohol now? After what time period is it safe to drink?

Alcohol Interaction: Tinidazole stays in your body for at least 72 hours so I would not consume any product that contains alcohol for at least 72 hours (84 hours to be on the safe side). The reaction between these two drugs is known as the Antabuse (disulfiram) effect. If you have experienced it, you know what I mean. If you have not experienced it, you really don't want to go there. Just wait a few more days for that drink. ...Read more

Can I drink alcohol while taking amox tr-k?

Alcohol & antibiotic: If you are on antibiotics for an infection, that means your body needs help. Alcohol is actually a toxin- although we are not used to thinking of it that way.
