won't interact with penicillin, but it will decrease the effectiveness of the antibiotic, and make healing time longer and the chance to spread whatever you have may increase.
Alcohol does alter the effects of Penicillin. It will kill alot of the necessary benefits of the Penicillin and you will need to take more and at a higher dose which could cause problems in itself. Your best bet is stop drinking for the necessary few days it won't hurt and may save your liver at that, sorry if it sounds like I was preaching but I am not just trying to help that's all. marjorie zych
