I recently got my wisdoms out and I was prescribed Clindamycin as a pill. And I was planning to go to a party on Saturday for New Years [3 days after the surgery]. I was prescribed to take one pill every 8 hours for about 10 days. And I was planning on consuming alcohol that 4th night and I have been doing a lot of research and it says Clindamycin does not interact with Ethanol or Alcohol. So is it safe to consume alcohol while taking this medication? If not am I able to skip a dose and drink then take the medication again after? Thanks.
There is no problem with consuming alcohol while taking the antibiotic clindamycin.
I just wanted to add that if you regularly consume alcohol, where your liver could possibly be damaged, then you might want to think twice about mixing the two. You should be ok, but just wantd to throw in my thoughts... .
The myth that you cannot drink on antibiotics started in the tall sailing ships days by doctors who had to treat venereal disease and devised from keeping the sailors getting it again from prostitutes in the taverns so the sailors who were told they could not drink simply avoided the taverns and thus avoided the prostitutes
