Can flagyl and/or ciprofloxacin in combination with alcohol cause a higher breathalyzer reading and/or cause alcohol to remain in your system longer?
Why do you ask?: Your doctor must have told you not to drink while you're taking flagyl. It's quite dangerous. And while you're on "Cipro", both alcohol and caffeine are best avoided. They won't actually raise the level. If you failed a breathalyzer, you need both a good lawyer and an eagerness to make sure that nothing like this ever happens again. Best wishes. ...Read more

Worse: You should not be taking alcohol while on such medication. Even without being on medication, alcohol is a poison that never did anybody any good, ever, stay away from it.

Nausea from meds: Controlling nausea can sometimes be a challenge. This side effect is very well known from flagyl. Upping the dose of the zofran may help, or your doc can try a different antiemetic such as reglan (metoclopramide) or compazine (prochlorperazine). My personal favorite is ginger-- usually I will eat 2 slices of the crystallized stuff or make a ginger tea by boiling a chunk of root for 10 min then adding honey to taste ...Read more
Taking Flagyl; I know no alcohol or soy sauce. Can I safely eat a pickle, or bbq sauce that contains distilled vinegar as an ingredient, tho?

Will the Jack Daniels sauce from TGI Friday be bad for you if you are taking flagyl? Might be a dumb question but not supposed to have alcohol at all.
No: If you drink any alcohol at all with Flagyl being taken simultaneously, then you will definitely get very sick and start vomiting! or what we refer to as an Antabuse (disulfiram) reaction. This is a well known problem with flagyl. Not a pleasant experience at all. I would recommend completely avoiding all alcoholic drinks while taking flagyl. Period. ...Read more
