This question has also been asked and answered here: Can you drink alcohol while taking ciprofloxacin?

Hello. Cipro is a powerful antibiotic. If you have any liver or kidney problems It can cause complications. Alcohol challenges the liver. Although the literature does not restrict use, I would suggest no more than a small glass of wine or beer. More than that will not help your body heal.
