Brief Answer: CAN DRINK IN MODERATION. Detailed Answer: Hello THanks for writing to us with your health concern. There are no known interactions between azithromycin and alcohol, when taken in moderation. You can have a glass or two. When consumed in excess, it can lead to rapid metabolization of the drug and lessened efficacy. All the best Please feel free to discuss further.
