Hello arch123. Yes you can. However, more often than not it is suggested not to drink alcohol while taking an antibiotic as it will weaken the potency/effectiveness of the drug. Regards pledge

You can drink with it, but Cipro can mess up your stomach enough without adding alcohol to the mix.

Hello. Cipro is a powerful antibiotic. If you have any liver or kidney problems It can cause complications. Alcohol challenges the liver. Although the literature does not restrict use, I would suggest no more than a small glass of wine or beer. More than that will not help your body heal.

It also is bad for tendons. I already had tendonitis and was prescribed this. It even messed up the tendons in my hip. I'm getting over that, but I was just getting where i could walk after PT. Now my legs are so weak, and my feet and ankles hurt pretty bad. It just doesn't seem fair.
