    Is alcohol advisable while on Levofloxacin?

Posted on Wed, 9 Aug 2017 in Medicines and Side Effects
Question: Can I have a drink of wine with levofloxacin tonight? I take the last of a 4 days regimen tonight. It was to prevent any infection that may have occurred because of a prostate biopsy through the intestine wall.

Brief Answer:
No harm if alcohol intake is small!

Detailed Answer:

Yes, you can have small volume son wine tonight. Say, a glass of wine at dinner time would be okay. Generally, excess alcohol is not good and alcohol while on drugs is not advised but small volumes are tolerable in the case of levofloxacin treatment.

I hope this helps and addresses your query fully. Feel free to follow up with me of need be.
