Why Cant You Have Alcohol While On Antibiotics
If im taking antibiotics (for gonorrhea) that say not to drink alcohol while taking it and i accidentally did will it stop my medicine from working?
Yes you can, BUT: it always worries me when people find drinking so important that they need to ask this kind of a question. I would also wonder what kind of infection is being treated, and HOW MUCH ALCOHOL you are talking about. Alcohol decreases the activity of white blood cells that fight infection and make antibodies, and it is not the best thing to take when you are trying to cure an infection.

I have been prescribed topomax for migraines. Are you really not able to have any alcohol while being on this?
Just go easy: Some migraines are provoked by alcohol, especially red wine. If one of your adverse effects from topamax (topiramate) is sedation, the alcohol will make it far worse. So, this is a mixed bag, but i allow my patients to have one or two bottles of beer or glasses of white wine, if they are stable, so, give the drug a few weeks in therapy range and try a drink and see how it goes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There are no specific interactions between cephalosporins (the class of penicillin-like antibiotics that includes Cefzil (cefprozil)), and having one or two social drinks on occasion will not likely cause harm.

Dont understand ?: I don't know what you mean by seizures. Convulsions cause unconsciousness and do not "hurt, " although afterwards you may feel sore muscles, and if you fall and hurt yourself you will feel whatever that may be. Your questions cannot be properly answered online, you need a doctor to take a full history, do an exam, and get specialized tests like an eeg, ct scan, blood tests and other things. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
