Patient :Hello, it is my 18th birthday tonight and i am wishing to have a few drinks of alcohol. However, 10 days ago i had suspected tonsilitis and was given some antibiotics. 2 days ago, i went back to the doctor because i wasnt getting better, and it turned out that i now had tonsilitis. my antibiotics were changed to a higher dosage, and i still remain on them. i am pretty sure it is just penicillin. would i still be able to drink tonight? thanks.
