Hello niall. I believe you mean Cefazolin. Its an antibiotic as you know, and the rule most often given by doctors is not to mix the two. Alcohol and an antibiotic. The reason is simply that the alcohol will weaken, the purpose of the antibiotic by leaving your body, earlier than it was supposed to, and so your system is not receiving the full benefit of the antibiotic. My answer is yes, you could take a glass of wine. Having said that,I'm not a doctor, so you might want to contact your doctor or pharmacist to confirm one way or the other.very best to you.
