Hi there, happy to report my ankle and knee are just great! Question - if I'm taking Zithromax for sinus infection, may I have a glass or two of wine at a holiday party? thank you

Nurse Milli :

Hi there, glad to hear you are feeling better! It is not recommended to have alcohol with Zithromax. This medication can cause dizziness, blurred vision, drowsiness, or lightheadedness. Drinking alcohol can intensify these effects and could also render the medication to be not as effective.

Customer :

ok.... sad face!

Customer :

how long after I finish the meds may I have wine?

Nurse Milli :

I know...better to hold off though

Nurse Milli :

you could have a glass of wine the day after you stop the Zithromax

Nurse Milli :

...should be okay

Customer :

ahhh ok.... thank you!

Nurse Milli :

Thank you! Glad you are feeling better!

Customer :

If I've had zpak in the past with minimal side effects, should that be the cas now? I hate meds!

Customer :

case now

Nurse Milli :

you could have dizziness, blurred vision, drowsiness, or lightheadedness even if you have not had any of these symptoms in the past when you mix with alcohol.

Customer :

oh no, not with alcohol, just in general

Customer :

no wine!

Nurse Milli :

yes, you may not have any side effects from the Zpack if you it didn't bother you before

Nurse Milli :

just know if you add alcohol in the mix, that you might experience some unpleasant side effects

Customer :

ok thank you so much! wish you could be my NP in Cali! Have a good rest of your day. Thank you again for your kindness!

Nurse Milli :

you are very welcome! you have a good rest of your night too! :)
