Daptomycin Alcohol speaks to what is Daptomycin, Daptomycin alcohol interaction and side effects.
Daptomycin belongs to the family of drugs known as antibiotics and is used to treat dangerous infections caused by specific bacteria and also may be used for other conditions. The drug is injected into the patient.
Do not drink alcohol not even moderate drinking while using cubicin as it will negate the effect of the antibiotic.
At this time the medical community defines moderate consumption of alcohol as no more than two drinks per day and no more than 14 drinks per week. Anything more than that is considered an unhealthy dependency on alcohol that may have adverse social, family and health consequences.
If a person drinks only once or twice a week but drinks on the same days each week and more than two drinks this is considered as an alcohol dependency.
If a person binge drinks at any time during the week this is also considered as alcoholism.
Some consider alcoholism as a disease while others consider it an addiction which is the result of personal choice and character fault. This school of thought blames the alcoholism on life style choices.
Personally I consider alcoholism a genetic tendency as I have seen families of alcoholics even when they live far apart. These unfortunate people are probably dependent on alcohol from the first drink.
When alcohol interacts with prescription over the counter drugs it usually results in negative health effects most especially liver damage as the main organ affected.
