Can I drink one alcoholic drink while taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) antibiotics? It's only one alcoholic drink through all of the process of taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) antibiotics.

A . A single drink per day should not interfere significantly with your antibiotic. You raise a good point. Patients should always discuss their alcohol use with their physician and/or pharmacist upon starting new medications. Alcohol, certain fruit juices, over the counter supplements, and naturopathic medications can all potentially interact or cause side effects with certain prescription medications.
