How long do you have to wait to drink alcohol after taking antibiotics?

Report as

When taking antibiotics you should avoid alcohol completely. Antibiotics stay in your system for 2 to 3 days after taking them, even though it is not as strong as just taking one of the pills. If you drink while taking antibiotics, you can cause the antibiotic not to work in it's full capacity, or you can cause the medication to not metabolize correctly in your system. I would wait a few days after your done with your medication to start drinking.
