Do Antibiotics Clean Your System
Not in my opinion: No and you should not take antibiotics unless they are rx for a bacterial infection. Thc binds to the same receptors as harder drugs and is stored in fat cells. If you want it out of your system stop using it, exercise and drink water to help rid your system of the bi-products of fat breakdown. ...Read more
Hi, doctor, what may be antibiotics that can clean your immune system as a result of another overdosed drug/antibiotics?
No treatment needed: If you are ill following antibiotics -- e.g. certain kinds of severe diarrhea -- follow your doctor's advice about treatment. Otherwise, don't worry about it. Even after large doses of antibiotics, or an overdose, the immune system is not harmed. Other effects, such as your body's normal bacteria being resistant to some antibiotics, will take care of themselves over a few weeks. No worries. ...Read more
Metabolism: There is no 'easy way' to flush out antibiotics from your system - your body has to do that naturally. There are 2 main organs that do that - the liver and the kidney. Depending on 'what' antibiotics you took, either organ may be doing the brunt of the work. I would advise 'being kind' to each organ: so no alcohol or toxins for the liver. Drink lots of water for the kidneys and keep salt to a min. ...Read more
5 half lives: Various antibiotics have different half lives. A half life is the time it takes to excrete 1/2 of the drug present in the body. A drug is considered to have been totally eliminated after 5 half lives. Therefore find out the half life of the antibiotic you are interested in and multiply it by 5 and you will have the time it takes for that drug to be eliminated. ...Read more
Antibiotic Half-Life: The half-life of an antibiotic in the system varies greatly among antibiotic. Each antibiotic has it's own half-life which is the time it takes for half of the drug to leave the body. Normally, after 5 half-lives, the drug is considered totally gone. So if Ampicillin has a half life of 1 hour, after 5 hours it is completely gone from the body. Remember, each drug has it's own unique half life. ...Read more
Depends: Most antibiotics you take are out of your system within days. You can look at the number of times a day you have to take a pill and then try to realize that it must be washing away if you have to take it multiple times a day. Since there are so many different antibiotics I can't give a specific answer, but usually after 5 'half-lives' the antibiotic is totally gone. Twice a day? -> gone in 2 days ...Read more

Depends on infection: What are you trying to kill? The GI tract is full of all kinds of bacteria- maybe 4000 species! Generally gnr and anaerobes, but really varies depending on location in the tract. For example h. Pylori is limited to the stomach. Abx should be tailored to potential source. Metronidazole / Ciprofloxacin is a common combination for large intestinal infection. ...Read more
How many days exactly does it take for chlymidia to get out of your system after having the antibiotics?
I took my last antibiotic pill today. How long does the medicine stay in the system and gone completely?

Would an antibiotic still be in my system? Took the last one yesterday, or should I go back to the Dr to get more? Not over my bronchitis yet.
Maybe doesn't matter: Most antibiotics drop to ineffective levels within 24 hours, but azithromycin (Zithromax, Z-pak), which is often used for bronchitis, lasts 7-10 days. However, it probably doesn't matter. Antibiotics often don't speed clearing of bronchitis; and when they do, probably only the first 5-7 days matters. After that, additional antibiotic usually makes no difference. But check with your doctor. ...Read more
