    Just came back from the docs and hes put me on antibiotics for a month to treat my acne. I did ask him whether it was ok to take them as i am on a diet and he said it was fine. I didnt mention CD. Has anyone taken antibiotics while doin CD?

    Sorry I don't know but two weeks into CD and my skins looking alot better-think its the lack of chocolate and drinking lots of water, maybe you could see if the diet helps without the antibiotics?

Im gonna have to take both and just hope its safe to do so. Fingers crossed. x

    Hey,

    I am on antibiotics for 3 months for my acne and i am on cd as well! it hasnt made a difference at all. Besides my cdc said it didnt make adifference if you were on antibiotics as most antibiotics have to be taken before food or on an empty stomach.

    i asked my doctor as well and he said he you dont see side effects then you are fine....lol....

    hope this helps

    Hey Suki, If u dont mind me askin what antibiotics are you on for ur acne and have they made a difference?? Ive been given erythromycin. Was on Dianette for a long time and had perfect skin but then for the past yr have had really bad depression so came off as it is one of the side effects. I feel so much better now but my acne has come back.

    I've been told that ANY kind of drug will have twice the power/effect on someone on a VLCD. Can anyone corroborate this? (Possibly nurse or medic might know?)

    You can take antibiotics on SS but you need to check whether your antibiotics need to be taken with food ( if so, take with the last drop of your shake / soup/ tetra/ porridge ) or if they are not to be taken with milk , take at least 1 hour before any CD product .

    More info here (I swiped what I wrote above from this post :D :D).

    But speaking as a former nurse, no, it's not true that drugs have twice the power/effect on someone who's following a VLCD. You just need to think about the effects of taking medication on an empty stomach, etc.

    Hope this helps.
