This question has also been asked and answered here: Can you drink alcohol while taking ciprofloxacin?
The use of ciprofloxacin together with alcohol has not proven to have any unsafe interactions. However, the alcohol can slow down the efficiency of the drug at fighting the infection, therefore it is not recommended. It is a fact that antibiotics and alcohol operate in the same way, which is to pass through the bloodstream, cause a little change in the body, and eventually washed out. So the body may experience stress in processing both courses of action at the same time. It is not a good plan to drink alcohol while your body is busy combating an infection. Alcohol consumption may suppress the immune system which results in decreased production of white blood cells that aid in taking down infections.
