When is it safe to drink alcohol again? (Stomach Parasites and Antibiotics)

I was recently diagnosed with having three different stomach parasites (Cyclospora, Giardia, and Cryptosporidium). On August 8th, I was first given Xiflacan and Sulfamethoxazole/Trimethoprim to treat the Cyclospora and was given Dicyclomine to use as needed for stomach cramping. I took the Xifalcan until August 13th and am currently still taking the Sulfamethoxazole/Timethoprim and will end my last dose the morning of August 19th. I haven't had to use the Dicyclomine as much now because the cramping has stopped. On August 14th I found out that I also had Giardia and Cryptosporidum so I was prescribed Alinia to treat both of those. Alinia was a three day antibiotic that ended on August 17th.

I was wondering when it would be safe to drink again especially with all of these different antibiotics that have been in my system. I was planning to drink the weekend of August 23/24th and my 21st birthday is August 28h.

I am sure the antibiotics will be out of my system by then but I am still worried that the antibiotics may not have killed off everything and that there could be a chance that some are still in my system..

If this did happen, and there is still a parasite in my stomach, would drinking make it worse? You would think that alcohol would kill parasites but I really have no idea. I just want these parasites to be out of my body but I would also really like to enjoy my 21st birthday.
