Is it ok to take antibiotics with vitamin and mineral supplements? And will it help the antibiotics If I'm taking vitamin and mineral supplements? I found the antibiotics wernt really doing much, so I stopped and decided to take up vitamin and mineral supplements. Now I'm thinking about combinding the two. Any thoughts?

Buy a good source of mineral water like a good spring water. Only take take antibiotics if you are dieing and 99% of vitamin supplements are a scam and have negative side effects.

Most antibiotics are not effective if you take them with calcium, so space the antibiotics at least 2hrs from the supps. Antiacids are the same story, calcium based or other metals no matter.I don't find vitamins or supps really help my skin, but I do feel healthier overall which makes a good diet with wise vitamin and mineral supplementation a good practice.

Antibiotic abuse over time causes more acne, because it makes the flora of the intestines become overgrown with candida.

Derms should have lawsuits filed against them for doing this. It's the dumbest thing they do.

I have never heard that calcium interferes with probiotics, but I am not 100% certain.As far as antibiotic abuse, drug resistance is the the #1 reason not to overuse antibiotics. The bacteria develop immunity due to long term exposure to the drug/s.Each generation of bacteria mutate slightly to survive in the presence of the antibiotic. Eventually, the drug is useless because a colony can thrive even at max dosages of the drug/s.
