It is never a great idea to drink alcohol while taking the drug Levaquin. The reason it is not a good idea is because alcohol is going to make the effects of the drug less potent and it won't be as useful. Levaquin is something that is just temporary so most people refrain from drinking alcoholic beverages while they are on Levaquin. It is understandable that if you were going to be taking Levaquin the rest of your life you might want to drink but since it is only temporary there is no reason why you couldn't abstain during that time. A doctor will also suggest that you don't drink alcoholic beverages as well.
