For the amount of the drug in your body to be reduced by half, it takes between one and two hours. Amoxicillin is an antibiotic drug that is used by doctors and general practitioners to treat bacterial infections that are caused by susceptible microorganisms. The medicine has a relatively short life so you shouldn’t worry about the drug remaining in your system for all that long.

After 10 hours or so, you can expect around 95% of the medicine that you have taken will be eliminated and sent to the kidneys. Afterwards, you can expect the drug to be completely eliminated and all traces to have been removed from the body within a day or so.

Many people want to know how long the substance takes to become eliminated from the body so that they can drink alcohol. Essentially, you can expect to be able to drink alcohol around 24 hours after taking the drug. You never know precisely how long it’s going to take for the substance to leave your body, and hence, it’s important to be safe when thinking about drinking alcohol. Alcohol has a bad effect on the workings of the antibiotic drugs and if taken during the time in which the antibiotics are getting to work then you can’t expect the antibiotics to do their job properly.

Antibiotics work by getting rid of bacteria within the body, using substances that are known to kill particular kinds of bacteria. Alcohol can reduce the effectiveness and can hence make problems worse, as your antibiotic dose will only have to go higher until the problem is finally solved.

Antibiotics need to be taken regularly and according to the guidelines in order to work. Failure to stick to the guidelines could land you with health problems and reduce the effectiveness of the drugs no end.

It takes around 1-2 hours for amoxicillin amount in your body to be reduced by half. After around 10 hours around 95 % of the medicine will be eliminated by the kidneys. Basically after a day, your system will eliminate the complete traces of this drug. So I suggest if you want to take alcohol wait for a maximum of 24 hours after you have taken the medicine.
