Hi
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your query.
I think I would be able to help you.
The fact remains that there is no contraindication to taking alcohol with ofloxacin.
if you are on metronidazole or ornidazole along with it, then there may be a problem.
There is a possibility of severe nausea.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information helps you. Please feel free to contact us for more information. Best of luck. Dr Mittal.
