Diabetic foot: Your question is not specific enough for me to answer. With diabetic feet you can receive medications to help with infections (antibiotics), the neuropathy (if painful), or the arteries (to help keep the blood from being sticky).
Dr. Steven Frydman

There is no diab ft : There is no diabetic foot medication.You may have taken an antibiotic which you will finish taking when the infection is healed.

It depends...: It depends on the medication and on the condition you are treating.
