Continuous antibiotics for infection prevention?


Recommended Posts

Hi again, :)

Does anyone here take continuous antibiotics for infection prevention? I ask as my husband is currently on his last day of antibiotics for a lung infection, and he seems to do so much better when he is ON antibiotics. I was thinking of asking his onc. on Wed. if he can prescribe a low dose of an antibiotic for infection prevention and so my husband feels better. Is this off the wall, :shock: , or is this indeed something that is done?

Thank You. :)

HI Michelle, That has been someting my doctor has discussed with me as I have recurrent lung infections, I guess the down side is that it could create an infection that the antibiotics won't work against. I think it is a viable thing to ask your doctor.
