If you are on antibiotics for a chest infection and start drinking again when it clears, will alcohol cause it?
to return?

Cocoa Dusted Love
That's a difficult question. Of course it depends on whether we're talking about a glass of wine, or a whole night on the town, out in the cold, bad food and getting absolutely p*ssed. In the first case, no it won't return because of the alcohol. In the latter case, yes it will probably return because after an infection your immune defenses are down and putting yourself out like that will make you very vulnerable to having the infection return or another illness come.

synthetic antibiotics are unaffected by alcohol, alcohol prevents normal antibiotics from working.

Alex D

if your on antibiotics.. DO NOT drink booze.. is the short answer and you should complete the course of them. Save the booze till after you have finished the course

it interferes with how they work.

happy Christmas

Antibiotics are live but weakened virus that cause the body to fight the original virus by making your attack cells increase in number. Alcohol kills ALL living things, drinking while taking an antibiotic kills the antibiotic making it useless.
In order to get the intended result you must take ALL the prescription!! Not just stop when you are feeling some better!! So many people do this!!! Why do you think they prescribe so many? To fill lonely trash cans or make sure sewer rats stay healthy?!!!

no alcohol doesn't cause chest infection but can predispose you to one

Judy Teen
When you take anti biotics, you must complete the course not stop when it clears. If you drink alcohol during a course of antibiotics, you should resume taking them after your night out.

alcohol does not cause an infection...however, if you are sick u should stay away from it to get better.just make sure u take all of ur antibiotics, or u could get an even worse infection. i dont know if alcohol necessarily inhibits the effectiveness of antibiotics, but to be safe just wait until the course of med. is finished. if ur meds are done, then i dont think a few beers would be a problem.

Dr Frank

Alcohol will not cause a chest infection. Just make sure you finish the antibiotics.

BTW only a very few antibiotics need you to avoid alcohol.

Your chest infection can return if its still active. Try natural fruit with a good vitamin boost. If you have been presribed Antibiotics though by a doctor then it would be abit silly to not take them.

But alchohol and antibiotics can cause severe pain in your stomach. It builds up trapped air.
