A2You should not drink alcohol while taking any type of antibiotic since the alcohol will interfere with the effectiveness and with some medications can cause serious side effects. Read the instuction phamphlet that came with the perscription. It should tell you what the use of alcohol will do when taking each medication. Hope you're well soon.
