Couldn't find what you looking for?



Yesterday I finsihed a course of antibiotics that were strictly no alcohol. I was wondering if it is ok to comsume alcohol today or if the antibiotics will still be in my system.

Thanks for your help!


Most of the time, if you're explicitly told to avoid drinking while on antibiotics, you are taking an antibiotic that reacts really badly when mixed with alcohol. In these cases, such as with doxycycline for instance, you are best off waiting for a few days after you finish your course of antibiotics to start drinking again.

What antibiotic are you using? If you don't want to say, just wait 48 hours and then have a few drinks if you like. This way, your body has the best chance of recovering from both the antibiotic use and the infection you were taking them for.
