Not recommended: This may decrease the effectiveness of the doxycycline and potentiate the effects of the alcohol and cause GI side effects

Not much: That is unless you're abusing alcohol. Otherwise a few drinks now and then shouldn't matter. If you've got a drinking problem however, it's time to get honest with your doctor. 5242 views

Doxycycline and Alcohol Yes, there is no direct warning to not take alcohol while taking doxycycline. But it is still an antibiotic and all medicines, in general, should not be consumed with alcohol.

In fact you can even drink alcohol while you are taking the doxycycline. The alcohol will not stop antibiotic from working and you shouldn't experience any nasty effects. Some health professionals will recommend you avoid alcohol whilst you are taking antibiotics for an infection to give your body the best chance possible to fight the infection.

The rule of thumb to avoid alcohol when taking just about any medication applies to doxycycline. However, when you consume alcohol, the length of time the compound remains in the body is significantly reduced. The liver will flush the combination from the body while it is detoxing alcohol from the body.

Dear customer ethanol ingestion may reduce the serum concentration of doxycycline. Which means it can make the antibiotic less effective, so I do not recommend you to drink alcohol while you are taking this antibiotic. I hope this helps Ask Your Own Medical Question

Why You Shouldn’t Take Alcohol with Doxycycline As with most medications, Doxycycline should not be taken with alcohol. Alcohol can hasten the elimination of the antibiotic from the body. According to the study by Neuvonen et al., alcohol intake can shorten Doxycycline’s half-life.

In addition to calcium containing compounds negatively impacting the somatic absorption of Doxy, please be aware that those taking an extended dose of antibiotics may lose their tolerance of 'dairy' altogether; particularly if you are over the age of 45.
