How long should one wait between the last tablet and the first drink?

I've managed to stay off the drink and have only one tablet left to take.

Read the package insert or look it up online and read the drug interactions section.

As far as I learned it simply increases the clearance of the antibiotic from your system (depending on where it is cleared) thereby making it less effective.

This is the same reason why women are told to use a backup form of contraception if they are given antibiotics while on the pill.
