Can I drink wine while taking cephalexin 500mg. There was no warnings on the bottle or print out. I am currently taking this to heal a boil.

Some . Some antibiotics such as Metronidazole (flagyl) or trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (bactrim) can give a more severe reaction when mixed with alcohol leading to flushing, dizziness, fast heart beat, nausea and vomiting. Other antibiotics, such as doxycycline, are metabolized by the liver and may not be as effective when mixed with alcohol. Cephalexin is in a class of antibiotics that should not cause you any trouble. If you have any specific questions about the antibiotic you are on, give your doctor a call.
