Can I drink alcohol while taking amoxicillin?

Medically reviewed by Last updated on Apr 18, 2019.

Official Answer


There is no interaction between alcohol and amoxicillin, so it should do no harm.

In general, drinking any amount of alcohol while fighting an infection may not be wise, as it can lead to dehydration, interrupt normal sleep, and may hinder the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
