What happens if your on Antibiotics for an infection then start drinking?

I was put on pills for Bacterial Vaganosis or something like that, I took the pills around 3:30pm and then later on that night around 12 maybe I started drinking, it doesn't take me a lot to get drunk but I threw up after maybe 5 or 6 shots. This morning I have a cough, a headache, leg pains, nausea and like hot flashes. I'd like to know what I should do or if I need to see a doctor or something.

When one is on antibiotics and mix it with alcohol, it does not take effect. Alcohol destroys the strength and products of the drug, making it inadequate. You may visit a doctor for advice.

Nah the drugs just "fueled" the alcohol making it feel like the 5-6 shots were 10-12. Thats why drugs say dont take with alcohol. Also why many kids do take drugs with alcohol, so they get drunk faster. Idk if it made the antibiotics useless or not. I sorta doubt it but idk?

It is terrible for your liver, just hold off on the drinking for a few days until you're done with your round of antibiotics.

You should be fine. I'm sure it was still effective.

You can social drink and nothing will happen to your liver. The reason why people own bars, is because, on the holidays they go to the bar and not invite everybody to their houses and people meet there in the neighborhood to socialize

I think medication and alcohol do not mix because of side effects
