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).

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