Can I get drunk while taking Doxycycline?

Patient

Q: Is it ok to drink heavily 2 days in a row while taking Doxycycline? I have been taking Doxycycline for acne for 3 days now with no side effects, either than feeling a bit tired an hour after taking it.

Symptoms:  No symptoms

A:   Hello,
Thanks for choosing "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.
Preferably not. If possible they may be avoided as both of them get metabolized in liver and may effect each others metabolism. This may impair the action of doxycycline and if already there is a weak liver, then it can causes liver damage. It may be avoided as much as possible.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

Wish you good health!
