There is nothing to suggest that having some alcohol while on Amoxicillin is harmful or will affect the antibiotic. There is no indication the two will have adverse reactions to each other; however, it is better to take the medication well in advance of drinking the alcohol. This way, there is time for the antibiotic to get well absorbed into the system before you drink any alcohol.
There is a widespread myth that alcohol interacts with all antibiotics, including amoxicillin (Amoxil®, Moxatag™). However, this is simply not the case. While there may be other reasons to avoid alcohol while you are sick, there are no known drug interactions between alcohol and amoxicillin. There is also the belief that alcohol will make amoxicillin less effective. This is also not the case.
Dr. Alan Galbraith says:
"There is no reason whatsoever that alcohol cannot be drunk while on amoxycillin or for most antibiotics. I do not know where this urban myth came from but it is very widespread even amongst some of the medical profession. There is only one group of commonly used drugs which are antibiotics in the wider sense of this term that may cause unpleasant adverse effects when taken with alcohol. These are the imidazoles, of which metronidazole (Flagyl) is the commonest in use."
"Contrary to popular believe there is no problems with alcohol and amoxycillin; most people including some doctors have this complete misconception."
I've been in this boat for over a year. It depends on the drug/situation, but if you're just taking a basic antibiotic as a precaution after an operation, drinking alcohol negates the effects of the drug and you're essentially wasting money on pills. It sucks during the holidays (I'm on them right now), but all you can do is bite the bullet and be diligent in taking your prescription every day and you won't end up being put back on them three times in a row due to infection...

No-one would have believed that human affairs were being watched from﻿ the timeless worlds of space. Few men even considered the possibility of life on other planets. And yet, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this Earth with envious eyes, and slowly, and surely, they drew their plans against us.
