I have been taking Amox-Clav (augmentin) 875mg tablets twice a day for one week so far. I was prescribed it for 21 days for bacteria that was found in my semen (I'm a male). The doctor said it is fairly common form of bacteria but might as well knock it out so prescribed the antibiotics.
My question is, I am visiting a friend in Dallas this weekend and will basically be in a drinking environment all day Friday and Saturday for a college football game. Can I drink while on amox-clav? Should I stop taking it for those two days and then start back up Sunday?
What should I do? I want to drink because I already paid for the flight/game but I also want the antibiotics to work of course.
wissco; what you want to do is take the antibiotic in your weekend just do the best you can so you get the most of the antibiotic it would hurt you more to stop the antibiotic and return to it a couple days later you need to keep the blood level up and steady of the antibiotic and it really does not have an ill effect of taking it while drinking but do the best you can don't wash it down with the beer space it a bit but again just continue it without stopping it for the weekend you need the full benefits of the antibiotic. good luck chuck1957

I wanted to know the answer to the question. I don’t have an answer.
