Synermox and Alcohol
Drinking alcohol while taking Synermox is generally considered safe, and it won't decrease the effectiveness of Synermox.
However, taking antibiotics such as Synermox may cause an upset stomach, and alcohol can make this and other side effects worse.
Q: I've been taking Synermox for a week for otitis media (middle ear inflammation), but only the pain has subsided. I still can't hear out of my affected ear, is ringing and feels plugged up. Should I ask the doctor to renew this prescription?
A: Generally, symptoms of infection improve after a few days of therapy with an antibiotic such as Synermox. Contact your health care provider for symptoms of otitis media (middle ear inflammation) that haven't yet resolved. You may need additional medications, such as decongestants. Meanwhile, be sure to complete the entire prescription of antibiotics unless your health care provider directs you otherwise.
