Have been on this medication for over a month...have a invite for a social event tonight. Would like have a few drinks. Is this ok ## Hello, Danny! How are you? It's best to stay away from alcohol, when taking any prescription medication. However, if you do chose to imbibe anyway, you should be aware that it can cause a worsening of the side effects, so you may experience more nausea, dizziness and drowsiness than normal. This effect can cause one drink to affect you as if you'd had, 2 drinks to affect you as if you'd had 4 and so on. Learn more APO Sulfatrim details here. And always check with your doctor, to make sure it is safe for you to drink.

Many doctors will adjust the dosage of an antibiotic according to the type and severity of the infection being treated. While it is always wise to double check, at this point your doctor likely wants to load you up to make sure these bugs are fully eradicated. Have you started taking them, yet? ## 5 hours seems like it...

Friend Just had a glass of wine while taking apo sulfatrim

My Friend Just had a glass of wine while taking apo sulfatrim (Sulfameth/Trimeth for a UTI. She's Vomiting uncontrollably, extreme nausea and dizziness wont stop for the last 2 hours.
