Yes, it can "cancel" out a antibiotic. What I mean by that is, you can have negative (bad) reactions to the drug. The antibiotic may not work in some cases.

Flagyl and alcohol together cause severe nausea and vomiting, flushing, fast heartbeat (tachycardia), and shortness of breath. It can make you extremely sick.
