I was prescribed with amoxicillin by my dentist. The reason my dentist gave me that antibiotic was because my gums got swollen with a big of puss which made one side of my throat hurt. All of this was caused because of my wisdom teeth. The amoxicillin was given to ease the pain and swelling in order for me to remove 2 of my wisdom teeth. The amoxicillin i'm currently taking is 500mg which i take 3 times a day. I have approximately 6 more days before i finish taking it. My question is, am i able to consume alcohol such as vodka, beer, or wine while taking this antibiotic for that specific reason.
Hi, i was always told by my doctor that drinking alcohol while taking antibiotics will affect the medications efficacy
Nope if you want your antibiotics to work properly.
No- while not dangerous the antibiotic won't work if taken with alcohol
Its Never a good idea to drink in a antibiotic it can dilute the ability for it to work as well as dehydrate you
A pharmacist once told me not to have any alcohol while on antibiotics ,sorry
No! My doctor told me to never drink any type of alcohol while taking amoxicillin.
