At first glance the lay-person may think that making antibiotics is a simple task, after all penicillin comes from bread mold or fruit mold (it is actually in a liquid secrete…d by the mold rather than the mold itself). However, antibiotics are VERY complex molecules to make and CAN NOT be manufactured at home. It took years for nobel prize winning chemists to figure out how to make quantities of penicillin, so I don't think you'll have much luck: sorry! Penicillin, for instance, takes a lot of post mold manufacturing and processing to refine it and remove any impurities. If you want to know how tablets are made in general then that's pretty easy (most pharmacists are trained even if they never make them anymore). You start with the 'drug' you want to have as the main ingredient and then you add this to various compounds such as magnesium carbonate or calcium carbonate or common talc as bulkers, then add stabilizers, preservatives and colours etc. After that is done you can cold-press them or hot-press (metal presses that have tablet shaped negative dies) them depending on the ingredients used and the properties of melting in the GI tract that you want. A drug may be bound to other molecules that release it more slowly or else aids it's absorption into the blood stream. Finally you may coat the tablets with enteric coatings, colours, glycerin and the like to allow for smoother swallowing or else alter the release time or release location (most drugs are better released (tablet disolves) in the intestines rather than the stomach (many drugs can't pass the stomach lining or else are destroyed by the stomach's hydrochloric acid (btw, stomach acid is NOT sulpuric acid [aka, battery acid] as many people seem to think it is) Hope this helps! Fr33kman, MD Almost all antibiotics that are manufactured for human consumption can be purchased for the treatment of livestock. Even though they state that they are not for human consumption they are identical in every way to what is used in the treatment of people. They have to be due to the nature of antibiotics. You can buy enough antibiotics at the feed store for $5 to treat your whole neighborhood. It is patently false that you need a license to possess tablet manufacturing equipment. You need a license to sell the equipment. TheGold
Answer . I think that in short course antibiotic therapy,multivitamins should not be taken.But,in long term antibiotic treatment such as anti TB treatment,multivitamins or… specific vitamin such as B6 should be taken.

Antibiotics kill every call in your body not just bad ones but good also. After using them you will feel sick. This because of the destruction it does to your body.
No, flumel is not an antibiotic. Its an antipyrexial and an analgaesic.
When a daughter becomes pregnant, her parents may wonder if it is safe to give her Ganoderma Lucidum. The expectant mother may become moody, especially for the first pregnancy…. During pregnancy, women are quite sensitive to outer stimulation, both mentally and physically. Though it is a natural phenomenon, most women have difficulty adapting. During this period, taking Ganoderma Lucidum may act as a hemocatharsis, diuretic, and detoxicant and will allow the fetus to develop normally. This herb may also help woman who is difficult to get pregnant or who had habitual abortion before. Prof. Kanata of Tohoku University believes that taking this herb can strengthen sexual ability of both the male and female, intensifying the activity of spermatozoa and regulating ovulation of the female. Information of different sources reveals that Ganoderma Lucidum may be thought of as "friend of the female". It should be considered a required supplement for women
No, beer is not good for a pregnant lady. No alcohol is recommended for pregnant women. The surgeon general warns against drinking alcohol when pregnant. Some women consume sm…all amounts of wine, but this has not been proven by anyone that it does not cause any fetal damage. Small to large amounts of alcohol consumption during pregnancy can have harsh affects on the fetus known as fetal alcohol syndrome.
The baby needs protein to build muscle, almost any meat will do, the more natural the better. Grain-fed animals make the best, but it's very expensive, so not really an option… for most. In general, listen to your body. A lot of times, a craving is the baby's way of saying what it needs. Although, what a craving for banna fosters ice cream and pickles is supposed to mean is anyone's guess! You should also try to consume some meat that is high in iron - so red meats, and liver/kidneys in particular. However liver contains a lot of vitamin A, so should not be eaten more than once a week during pregnancy. Shellfish, although they do contain iron, should not be eaten during pregnancy due to the risk of food poisoning.
I am now taking Sozim (Lysozyme Chloridge) tablet, the pharmacist said it is not same as antibiotic capsule/tablet, you can stop taking it once you feel better. For antibiotic… capsule/tablet, you must finish a course say 5 day prescription...

Even of it's "just" vitamins you have to ask your doctor.

No, it contains a list of herbal ingrédients that may increase stomach enzyme production. According to Digestron, it may reduce H. pylori bacteria in stomach.
There are warnings against using wheat grass while pregnant as it is cultivated in a very moist soil. This increases the growth of mold and bacteria which may harm your unborn… baby or cause allergies. When the wheat grass is processed to powder some of those may end up in the powder. Probably most of them are killed during the process, but you never know. Other reports on the other hand, claim that it may strengthen the immune response in both mother and child and may improve digestion. I would avoid or limit the intake of wheat grass or the powder during pregnancy, just to be sure.
