Why Cant You Have Alcohol While Taking 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?
I discourage it: Alcohol is not a good drug when you are treating an infection. Also, I believe that when people ask questions about "can I drink beer" or "can I have wine" I don't think they are talking about 1-2 social drinks.

Hi, do you think I can drink alcohol when taking the strong antibiotics "flucloxacillin" or "amoxicillin"?
I have been having excessive gas and frequently going to urinate. I do not drink beer or smoke. I am taking birth control and citirizine.
Don't get drunk!: There's no mention of food or alcohol interaction w/amoxicillin at http://www.Drugs.Com/drug-interactions/amoxicillin.Html.

Don't forget to finish your medication as directed. In other words, don't save any for your next infection! ...Read more
