is there any problem by drinking alcohol ( beer, wine ) while taking this antibiotic?
Yes, you can safely drink alcohol while taking clarithromycin. It won't affect the effectiveness of your medicine.
However generally alcohol is best avoided. Alcohol can reduce your energy and delay how quickly you recover from illness. It is best avoided until you have finished your antibiotics and are feeling better.
