Antibiotics and Malabsorption
I am recovering from acute asthmatic bronchitis, acute sinusitis, and pneumonia. My Dr. First prescribed oral antibiotics - cephalexin. When I went back for my follow-up a week later, the pneumonia had gotten worse and I had not improved. My Dr. switched me to daily injections of Rocephin for 10 days, her thought being that the oral antibiotics were ineffective because of malabsorption.
I am am just curious to know if any of you have had a similar experience with oral antibiotics?
Thanks! Be well!
Most antibiotics are formulated so they do not break down to get absorbed until they reach the "climate" of the intestine (past where we have been bypassed) so malabsorption isn't really a concern.
More likely, it just wasn't strong enough to kick your "bug".
