What is the longest period of time that you have taken antibiotics?

How long? I have been on Bactrim of and on for a month, then got switched to a stronger one that i have to take for the next 30 days. Im just curious what is the longest anyone has had to take them.

  • All summer one year. We couldn't find the one to cure me. Once we did, at the end of summer, the problem cleared right up.

  • I kept getting staph infections in my nose one winter. I was on and off of the antibiotics all winter--I would take the whole dose, and a week or two later, get another one.

  • What are you on them for? have you had a culture done to make sure you are on the right antibiotic.. I would make sure. it isn't good to take them a lot unless absolutely necessary.

  • I took antibiotics for 9 months because I had a positive TB skin test in 2001. I was working with refugees and older adults at the time, so although my lungs were clear, public health law required that I take 9 months of antibiotics.
