Should I keep on fasting when on a course of antibiotics? Actually, I am on 2 courses but I assume the advice will be the same?
Read the leaflet that comes with the antibiotics and unless you can see any contra indications carry on fasting if you feel up to it.
Skooty. Re antibiotics. Medical research shows that such medication has a serious negative effect on your gut flora as does some other medication such as anti histamine.
After you finish the antibiotics you need to build up your good gut bacteria. I suggest you Google “Effects of antibiotics on gut microbes” or similar. Do a bit of research and respond accordingly with the correct types of food and you will benefit your overall health and recovery.
By the way I am not medically trained, my comments are based on experience, research and advice given by a clinical dietician.
