Are antibiotics pain killers?

NO. They are antibiotics. anti = against; and bio = life. Therefore antibiotics kill bacteria etc. (Indirectly, antibiotics may contribute to pain relief if the pain is caused by the types of infection resulting from those germs which antibiotics kill. However, antibiotics should never be taken as a direct painkiller. Rather, one should take them to fight germs when one has become infected; but only after ascertaining that antibiotics are needed and will help. A doctor should be consulted. Taking antibiotics for too long, or when not needed, can have unwanted consequences.)

Should you EVER take someone else's antibiotics as prevention against carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae or CRE infection?

Absolutely NOT. The reason super bugs like MSRA and the new carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae or CRE infection is so terrible is because people OVER-USE antibiotics! Never take anyone else's medicines. Always finish the antibiotic given to you for an infection. Never take antibiotics for a cold, flu or other viral infection. Never take antibiotics as "prevention"-- UNLESS a doctor instructs you to do so.
