It depends: There are as many answers to this question as there are antibiotics. Many are not particularly harmful if you get a slightly higher-than-recommended amount. However, they can cause serious problems. They can affect your liver or kidneys, or interfere with other medicines, for example.

I take long term antibiotics will taking flora tablets . Will this help or make no difference ?

Complex, no clinical trials; science. ...Read more

Are penicillin vk antibiotic tablets suitable for toothache?

Are penicillin vk antibiotic tablets suitable for toothache?

Possibly: You don't know if you have an infection, do you?

Diagnosed for Epididymo-Orchitis 2 weeks ago. I've completed the 5 days Cefalexin antibiotic tablets. No pain now but mild swelling. Can I masturbate?

Diagnosed for Epididymo-Orchitis 2 weeks ago. I've completed the 5 days Cefalexin antibiotic tablets. No pain now but mild swelling. Can I masturbate?

No harm: Masturbation probably won't hurt anything. At your age (19) by far the most common causes of epididymitis are chlamydia and gonorrhea, although these aren't possible if not at risk for STDs (new sex partner etc). Cephalexin won't cure chlamydia and is borderline for gonorrhea, but might work on other bacteria that can cause this problem. Re-check with your doctor if any doubt about all this. ...Read more
