Does drinking beer effect the ability to fight infection when taking amoxicillin/clavulan?

Answers (1)

The short answer is no, alcohol will not stop the antibiotic amoxicillin/clavulanate from doing its job.
However, if you have an infection, it is probably a good idea to avoid alcohol to give your body the best chance possible to fight the infection.
