While there are no official prohibitions against drinking alcohol while taking the antibiotic Levaquin, it is recommended that you drink minimally as long as you are on the medication. Levaquin's effectiveness is not affected by alcohol but some of the side effects of the drug are dizziness and upset stomach which could be aggravated by alcohol. Excessive alcohol intake can also delay your recovery from illness in general by depressing your immune system and sapping your energy levels. If you plan on drinking while taking Levaquin, do so cautiously until you are familiar with how the medication affects you.
