Can You Take Vitamins With Antibiotics
Absolutely: 19 year old lady with a question about taking probiotics during a course of oral antibiotics. You can take probiotics during your antibiotic therapy. The probiotic will not stop the antibiotic from being absorbed and doing its job. In addition, probiotics are beneficial in reestablishing the balance that may or may not be disturbed by the antibiotics. I recommend taking the probiotic 1 hr after. ...Read more
Cephtin/Alcohol: Not a good idea to drink while on antibiotics. The general problem is that alcohol interferes with the blood level of the drug. So the drug might not be as effective. If one is a heavy drinker there are other considerations such as liver problems. One can have side effects such as nausea and vomiting. ...Read more

Yes: You don't say which antibiotic but I am unaware of any adverse interactions between vitamin c and any antibiotics. If you are on an antibiotic you have an infection and vit c generally helps our immune system fight infections. I advise 1-2000 mg 2-3x/day for most people with infections. I also recommend probiotics during and after antibioitics, esp. One with scachromyces boulardii like florastar. ...Read more
Yes, however...: Yes, in fact this is wise if you have an infection as vitamins support your immune system.But one shouldn't take tetracycline or Doxycycline at the same time as multivits, calcium, magnesium or zinc-they should be taken at least 2 hours apart.High doses of vit. C may increase levels of tetracycline/doxycycline but this could help them work better.Vits have no know interactions with other antibiotics. ...Read more

Take care. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Can I take vitamins during an antibiotics treatment with penicillin? Can you tell me a first aid for penicillin allergic reaction ? Thank you :) Carol
Yes, and see below: So yes you can take vitamins while on antibiotics. The rationale is that when you go on system antibacterial agents like that you wipe out healthy flora in your gut and elsewhere. Vitamins, pro-vitamins and growth factors are synthesized by bacterial carpets (ie some B vitamins, riboflavin, thiamine, co-enzyme I & II and pyridoxine to name several). For PCN allergy; benadryl (diphenhydramine) & epinephrine. ...Read more

Done had 2 upper respiratory infections this fall had to get on antibiotics from doc . Multi vitamins from Walgreens fail to prevent it what good take?
Find a better Dr: No vitamins have any effect on this. In fact most people get full nutrition from food and derive no benefit from vitamin pills. "Upper respiratory" infection is far too broad. Most URI are viral and do not respond to antibiotics. We all get them. Do you smoke? Asthma? How bad were they? Get a FLU SHOT. ...Read more

Yes, and also...: No problem taking b complex and vitamin c while on antibiotics. I also strongly advise zinc, vitamin a & vit.

Diagnosed with staphylococcus vaginal infection. I am taking cefuroxime antibiotics for 7 days. Can i take probiotics and vitamin c along with antibiotics? And how long does the symptoms improve after taking my first dose of antibiotics?
Vaginal disch: A "cheesy discharge" after a course of antibiotics may be a "yeast" (fungal) infection, which your gyn provider can treat. Probiotics and vitamin C will not interfere with the antibiotic therapy. Your symptoms should be diminished from the staph infection within 3-4 days of the start of the antibiotics, if not, the staph infection may be resistant to the current therapy. ...Read more
Good evening, I am currently on antibiotics due to a sore throat. Can I take multivitamins while taking vitamins? Thank you
Allow 4 hours: Hello Martin341, There are a few antibiotics that should not be taken with multivitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium supplements as they alter the effectiveness of the antibiotic. If your vitamins are for general well being I would suggest stopping them for the course of the antibiotics. If you have to take them for other reasons, allow at least 4 hours between your supplement and the antibiotic. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I stopped taking antibiotics (wisdom tooth extraction - amoxicillin) few days ago, while starting to take pro-biotics. Would it be alright to take multi-vitamins now along side pro biotics?
