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
Money Will be Saved
Won't be affected by the smoke in pubs
No posting on a.net when absolutely shitfaced
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Damn, Kirkie, I didn't even know you HAD dentists in Scotland (or the rest of the UK for than matter).
Quoting ME AVN FAN (Reply 6): ever heard the rumour that they are thrifty up in Scotland ?
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.

Quoting Sabena332 (Reply 15): 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.
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.

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.
