Ive just taken 400mg and wonder if it is ok to have a glass of wine at dinner?
Hello Lalainuk. I'd say yes. But I'd leave it at one glass. As you know cefixime is an antibiotic, and as a rule antibiotics and alcohol are not mixed. When alcohol is consumned along with cefixime, it weakens the drug, in as much as it (cefixime) leaves your body earlier than intended. So, its not receiving the full theraputic effects of the drug. Thats why I suggested only the one glass. But, I'm not a doctor, so I'd check with your doctor or pharmacist to confirm or get thier opinion.very best to you
