I am taking 2 Cefdinir 300 MG tablets once a day, for a sore

Resolved Question:

I am taking 2 Cefdinir 300 MG tablets once a day, for a sore throat. I was wondering would there be any bad side effects if I drank alcohol a few hours after I took the pills?

On drug handbook review, there does not seem to be a direct interaction between Cefdinir antibiotic and ethanol (drinking alcohol).


On further review, Cefdinir is chemically purified with a mixture containing ethanol--no bad interaction.

So I should be fine drinking alcohol? And should not have any severe problems. What about drinking milk with it?

My database does not show any problem with drinking alcohol with this antibiotic. I can find no data specific to milk--you can always call the pharmacy that filled your prescription to discuss any alcohol or milk interaction with the pharmacist.
