I drank the powder antibiotic at the hospital for chlamydia last Friday, will it effect the antibiotic if I drink beer?

That depends on the antibiotic in question. In general, you should not take antibiotics with alcohol because it can slow your recovery time from the infection down, since alcohol weakens your immune functioning. There are some antibiotics that specifically should not be taken with beer, however. Linezolid can interact with fermented alcohol, which obviously includes beer.

If you are in doubt, just give your clinic a call and ask them if you can have a beer. If you can, don't overdo it though. You want to be as strong as possible to fight the chlamydia off as soon as you can.

Hi, 

since you took the antibiotic a week ago and if you are not taking any antibiotics now, a beer or two won't do you any harm or interfere with the treatment. But just like previous poster said - if you still need to take antibiotic therapy, you shouldn't drink any alcohol. For some antibiotics it just makes them less effective, but for most the problem is that alcohol mixed with antibiotics will make you liver work harder than it needs to which can have very unpleasant consequences - nausea and hangovers being 'easiest' of them.

If you are thinking about drinking more than a bear or two - or getting drunk, then the answer is straight don't do it. Antibiotics might be less effective and you'll just end up with under-treated infection.

Antibiotics taken with alcohol can reduce its effectivity. It would also harm your organs. Be very careful with all the meds you are taking.
