Hello AJO11872. As I've answered two of your previous questions in more lesss some depth I'll just add this, Ask your doctor, she/he will certainly have an answer to your question. My own opinion, its a no, because it would by drinking the alcohol, interfer with the antibiotics you're taking. It will usually cause by drinking the alcohol, the antibiotic to leave your body earlier than intended, so, dimishing, the potency of the dose/antibiotic. You'd be self defeating the purpose of taking the antibiotics. And theres the possibilty of suffering an adverse side effect, which might be dangerous. Very best to you and I hope you do feel better soon.
