Thank you:

There honestly is not a significant interaction between Augmentin and alcohol (at least in moderation).

 

As you may know, some people do get some nausea and/or diarrhea from Augmentin, and this could be aggravated by heavy alcohol use.

 

The Augmention would be out of your system within 24 hours.

There would not be any issue in regards to the antibiotic and alcohol 2 days after completing the course.

Ok can I take paraceatamol while taking anti biotic for some pain in back
Expert:  Family Physician replied 4 years ago.
There is no interaction between paracetamol and this antibiotic. There is no reason why you could not take paracetamol while on this medication.
