Can i take antibiotics after i get high and sober up?

Can i take antibiotics after i get high and sober up?

Think 'Big picture': If you've been prescribed antibiotics- that means your body needs help overcoming some type of infection. Getting high or getting intoxicated will NOT help the situation.

Hopefully you can think about the important things in life like your family, etc and get back on track. ...Read more

How do I manage Hashimotos adequately if I cannot take medicine yet? My antibody count isn't high enough to warrent it.
