Is it safe to consume alcohol while using Polymxin B sulfate and Trimehoprim antibiotic eye drops? Thank you ahead of time for any answers!
Dr. A.S. Desai : Hello,Welcome to
Dr. A.S. Desai : Antibiotic eye drops would not be affected by consumption of alcohol.
Dr. A.S. Desai : Does that answer your query? Is there anything else that I can answer for you?
Customer: Thank you! That is good to hear. So, there is no chance at all of any unpleasant side effects?
Dr. A.S. Desai : Atleast not by any interaction between the eye drops and alcohol !
Customer: Heh... Alcohol itself, on the other hand... Thank you!
Dr. A.S. Desai : Small quantity of alcohol would not cause any damage to the eye. But chronic consumption over a period of years ( again depends on the strength and quantity) can cause some amount of damage to the eyes . This is apart from its side effects on the body.
