Thank you for your question,

I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.

There is no reported interaction of nitrofurantoin with alcohol.

I would suggest to start nitrofurantoin as prescribed with delaying.

This will help to control your infection & prevent complication.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.
