I have been given a course of flucloxacillin for a skin infection. I was wondering, after hearing that you shouldn’t do intense excercise while on antibiotics, whether or not it will be ok to train normally? It’s a 7 day course, 500mg, 4x a day. I only heard about this after going to the docs so didn’t ask.

Depends how bad the skin infection is. The antibiotics themselves shouldn't cause a problem with running unless they make you sick/squitty.

Thanks V’rap, it’s not too bad, just wasn’t sure about the tablets. Hoping I don’t have any of the unwanted side effects.

Got something to say?
