I am a chronic carrier of typhoid since many years. Antibiotics fails to cure it as the bacteria form biofilms in body. How to destroy biofilm?

Awaiting discovery: Haven't heard of a way to prevent the formation of typhoid biofilms or to remove them. Research is surely underway to do just that.

Biofilms make an infection harder to treat and harder for one's immune system to eradicate. ...Read more

If I drink a couple if beers four hours after taking azithromycin single dose will it fail to cure chlamydia?

If I drink a couple if beers four hours after taking azithromycin single dose will it fail to cure chlamydia?

Not recommended: Antibiotics and combined Alcohol use are never recommended as the Z pak (azithromycin) is likely not going to be as effective for chlamydia use.

My rationale is that Z pak (azithromycin) is metabolized in the liver by Cytochrome p450 and Alcohol increases this same enzyme that degrades a Z pak (azithromycin).

If someone gets MRSA will they be cured by antibiotic or will tthey become a carrier of it.?
