Brief Answer:
Yes...

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

There is no interaction between Alcohol and Macrodantin. So the answer is that you can drink.

Just keep in mind that while drinking in moderation, it won't affect your treatment where as drinking too much may affect liver metabolism.

Since the liver plays a part in this drug metabolism, overloading it with Alcohol might result in higher drug concentrations.

I hope it helps!

Kind Regards!
