Can you drink alcohol while taking By Mycin?

I have been advised by my GP that it is possible to consume some alcohol while taking By-Mycin, but only if the drug is taken in the morning and the alcohol consumed in the evening. I believe that By-Mycin is an antibiotic and, as with most antibiotics, would have it's ability to perform impaired by the consumption of alcohol. Taking the drug in the morning and alcohol in the evening would give the drugs a reasonable time to have been consumed and circulated by the body before being affected by the alcohol. It is not recommended to take By-Mycin in the evening anyway, so this should fit in nicely with the consumption of alcohol (unless you are an alcoholic).
