Top best answers to the question «Can you drink on antibiotics for an infection»
Mixing alcohol with antibiotics is rarely a good idea. Both alcohol and antibiotics can cause side effects in your body, and drinking alcohol while taking antibiotics can raise your risk of these harmful effects. If the label on your drug says not to drink alcohol during treatment, follow that advice.
- Drinking alcohol on antibiotics weakens the immune system, making it harder to fight the infection. Drinking on antibiotics, like metronidazole and tinidazole, causes vomiting, cramping, and rapid heart rate. You can drink alcohol again three days after the last dose of antibiotics.
