I was diagnosed with strep yesterday, and I started taking antibiotics and steroids last night. I'm feeling much better this morning. I have a formal event tonight, and I'm considering drinking alcohol. Is it okay to continue taking my medications, or should I skip them for today?
Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.
Avoid Alcohol with Antibiotics:
Refrain from consuming alcohol while on antibiotics.
Alcohol may take up to 48 hours to completely metabolize in the liver.
There is a risk of interaction between alcohol and antibiotics.
It is recommended to prioritize your health and abstain from alcohol until you complete the antibiotic course.
