 SOMMER10 - Fri Jul 09, 2010 2:41 pm

I GOT SALMONELLA 2 WEEKS AGO AND STARTED TREATMENT WITH CIPROFLOXACIN. i FINISHED MY 10 DAY TREATMENT THIS MONDAY, SO I WANT TO KNOW HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT BEFORE I CAN DRINK ALCOHOL??

User avatar Hi,
It is generally not a wise thing to mix alcohol with any medication.

Ciprofloxacin may cause blurred vision, dizziness, drowsiness,or lightheadedness. These effects may be worsened by alcohol intake.

There is no study that i am aware of, which has tried to elucidate the ideal time interval between termination of ciprofloxacin therapy and resumption of alcohol intake. Therefore, i am unable to give you a scientifically based answer to your query.
Take care, Best wishes!
