Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

Alcohol should not be consumed while an individual is on any course of medications, as this could result in a number of adverse reactions, this is an age old rule. Also known is that the effect of antibiotics will reduce with the consumption of alcohol. Which might result in either the infection not being treated and thus requiring a longer course of the same antibiotic or changing the current antibiotic with one much stronger.

If you have not already experienced any reaction, then you should be safe. But, kindly avoid the intake of alcohol till you complete your course of antibiotics.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
