In brief: Shouldn't drink ETOH

Alcohol will inactivate most antibiotics and render them useless in fighting whatever the infection is that you are being treated for..
..best advice is to wait until you've completed the course of treatment and gotten the all clear from your doctor that the infection is gone. More questions? www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi Use Key Code: PDXFNR if you'd like to set up an appointment for a consult.
