This question has also been asked and answered here: Can you drink alcohol while taking ciprofloxacin?
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.
