I don't have any advice but look after yourself, perhaps phone the pharmacy?

A/B's shouldnt have an effect on weight loss per se but may affect your hunger levels!

Edited to add: if you are in ketosis the your uptake of the A/B maybe increased. So just be aware of any rashes/swelling in case of a reaction.

if anything it may improve your wieght loss as your body will use up more callories than usual to get you better. though i dont envy you being poorly on this diet.

hope your felling better soon X

Meds won't affect your losses. Some antiobiotics are best taken with food as they can be hard on the tummy. As you are on tfr perhaps take them with your shake. get well soon.
