Sulfameth-Trimethoprim and Alcohol
Dear Ask The Doctor:
I had a bad staph infection to my face and was prescribed Sulfameth-Trimethoprim for 15 days. I read that it was bad to drink on this medication so how many days after until I can consume alcohol again?? Thanks!
Answer:Usually after taking this medication i would hold off about 7 days before you start drinking alcohol again to be on the safe side.
