Is it safe to drink alcohol if you are taking clindamycin ? If so does the amount you drink make a difference?

In brief: Probably safe butttt

If you are on antibiotics, it is best not to be drinking while on the med and with an infection.
Alcohol is a depressant and can affect the white cells via the bone marrow. One drink is not what I am referring to. It's just best to get well and then drink responsibly.
