Taking antibiotics with alcohol In general, drinking any amount of alcohol while fighting an infection may not be wise, as it can lead to dehydration, interrupt normal sleep, and may hinder the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Some antibiotics have a variety of side effects, such as causing sickness and dizziness, which might be made worse by drinking alcohol. It's best to avoid drinking alcohol while feeling unwell anyway, as the alcohol itself can make you feel worse. Both metronidazole and tinidazole can cause drowsiness. Check with your pharmacist whether your antibiotic could make you drowsy. You should not drive or operate machinery if you're taking an antibiotic that makes you drowsy.

So check the label and avoid such products while taking these antibiotics. Although modest alcohol use doesn't reduce the effectiveness of most antibiotics, it can reduce your energy and delay how quickly you recover from illness. So, it's a good idea to avoid alcohol until you finish your antibiotics and are feeling better.

Depends on the antibiotic. If it is Metronidazole (Flagyl) you need to wait at least 24 hours after the last dose taken before consuming any alcohol. Other antibiotics are ok with Alcohol consumption. 31.5K views

Though moderate drinking is thought to be relatively safe with many antibiotics, most antibiotic medications are packaged with a warning to avoid alcohol during the course of treatment. Heavy drinking may impair immune system function, making it more difficult to recover from infection, and there are certain antibiotics known to interact negatively with alcohol. 9

For any other antibiotic, I'd say away! Metronidazole is a WHOLE DIFFERENT BALLGAME!! It has the same effect when mixed with alcohol as the drug that they give to alcoholics to prevent them drinking. You will have headaches, vomiting, diarhea, palpitations, and could be hospitalised. Please don't drink!!

Drinking while taking linezolid can cause your blood pressure to spike. Isoniazid (Nydrazid) is used to treat tuberculosis and can overwhelm your liver, leading to toxicity, when combined with alcohol. You can resume drinking alcohol once the antibiotic has cleared from your system, which is usually three days after the last dose.

To begin, probiotics will not deactivate the antibiotic or make them not work. It is actually much closer to the opposite, where antibiotics will deactivate/kill probiotics when dosed too close together. The need and relevancy of taking probiotics when on an antibiotic is justifiably increased however, as antibiotics are typically not a very “discriminatory” killer.
