Well, not for a week at least, having been to the Dentists today, getting 3 teeth out and being prescribed to a weeks supply of antibiotics (Amoxycillin or whatever it's called), I can not have a drink for another week  Sad
Positives are:
Money Will be Saved
Won't be affected by the smoke in pubs

Downsides are:
No posting on a.net when absolutely shitfaced

How is that a downside?  scratchchin 



Not drinking, also isn't a solution!

Damn, Kirkie, I didn't even know you HAD dentists in Scotland (or the rest of the UK for than matter).

Thrifty? You think so? My dad (who was born in Glasgow) always tried to get me in cheaper. The old ferries between Malmö and Copenhagen had a toddler fare for kids under five years old, and my dad would claim that I was five years old for years, he stopped when I was nine!

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

Glad to hear it Kirkie. Three at a time is rough. Have a speedy recovery before the enforced abstinence grows on you.

No, I took the antibiotic pills and washed them down with a few beers.

Good for you they worked. Actually, they had less of an effect (faster metabolism). And hey, maybe next time you can get a fulminant hepatitis from the mixture (not that I wish you that, don't get me wrong!)

Sorry, but some of the things doctors say are not bullshit. Not always.  Smile

Hmm... did that take place on your last flight with Lufthansa? That would explain a lot... Big grin

Seriously, not all antibiotics are the same. Some go well along with alcohol, others won't. Some even show side effects on calcium, so you would better not drink milk after you took them.

I once drank a couple of beers on the "wrong" antibiotics. Boy, what colours I saw... Big grin (Though it didn't kill me either, obviously)

Depends heavily on the antibiotic.
Alcohol may limit the effectiveness of the antibiotic, thus helping create antibiotic-resistent bacteria. Not funny ...

Amoxycillin or whatever it's called

Seems that with this one you will be at least safer if you take alcohol:

Int J Clin Pharmacol Ther Toxicol. 1988 Sep;26(9):428-31.

Amoxicillin kinetics and ethanol ingestion.

Morasso MI, Hip A, Marquez M, Gonzalez C, Arancibia A.

Department of Sciences and Pharmaceutical Technology, Faculty of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Chile, Santiago.

The effect of ethyl alcohol ingestion on amoxicillin kinetics was studied. Eight healthy volunteers participated in the study. They received, in three separate occasions, a 500-mg dose of the antibiotic given with water, hydroalcoholic solution or pisco-sour. Blood samples were drawn at appropriate intervals. Amoxicillin was assayed using a microbiological method. Absorption and disposition parameters were calculated by classical pharmacokinetic techniques. There were no statistical significant differences in the rate of elimination of the antibiotic in the three experimental conditions. Ethanol affected significantly the absorption rate constant, lag time and t peak. On the other hand, Cmax and AUC were not significantly modified. Thus, it can be concluded that ethyl alcohol has influence on the rate but not on the extent of absorption.
