Hello,

There are 2 alcohol/food/lifestyle interactions with erythromycin which include:

Erythromycin and Alcohol (Ethanol)
Minor Drug Interaction
Ethanol, when combined with erythromycin, may delay absorption and therefore the clinical effects of the antibiotic. The mechanism appears to be due to slowed gastric emptying by ethanol. Data is available only for erythromycin ethylsuccinate. Patients should be advised to avoid ethanol while taking erythromycin salts.
