    You can drink with most antibiotics, despite what they advise. But you should avoid the alcohol for the reason of thinning the blood.

    I've lost a tooth while drinking, playing rugby and in sleep (she was a wild child). There's never a time where alcohol isn't appropriate.

    Drinking alcohol in the first 24 hours may not cause your blood clot to fall out leading to dry socket but it might, i would rather take some strong painkillers and give alcohol a miss rather than risk this -

    Whoah! that looks baaaad, nothing worse than dental pain. I've not yet had a tooth out but have had an abcess that near sent me crazy, If there had been a gun in the room, that would have been my choice of treatment at that time.... asad1

    I have also had an abscess and i agree the pain was unbearable i would happily have had the tooth taken out to stop it. (it was one near the back so out of sight)

    I've had a dry socket and the pain from it was far far worse than the multiple abscesses i'd had to warrant my wisdom tooth coming out in the first place. It was truly awful, supposed to be some of the worst pain we can experience, and I can well believe it.

    Drinking with antibiotics? The only one to not drink with is Metronidazol it does make you very ill, up to 48 hours after your last dose.

    I had a tooth out last Thursday. Drinking on the Friday night. No I'll effects. The advice of no alcohol is because of the clot in the root, it should be fully set after 24 hours.

    I think they give or certainly used to give metronidazole (Flagyl) injections to alcoholics to stop them relapsing onto the booze. Apparently the interaction symptoms are quite spectacularly horrendous.

    As soon as you can drink without dribbling and emptying the contents of your mouth on your lap.

    Some medicines potentate the effects of alcohol so the medics advise you to avoid alcohol to cover themselves. My GP is pragmatic and says just be aware. Alcohol does not stop them from working (in most cases).
