Antibiotics and Mastoid Infections

I am 56 yrs. old and have had mastoid troubles since 5yrs old. I had my first ear surgery when I was 5 yrs. old on right ear with big scare behind the ear and another one right ear and left ear when I was 18yrs old and I have lost all hearing and feeling in left ear. I have frequent bouts with infection in right ear and have been using the drug “OFLAXACIN” with good results.

Antibiotics and Alcohol

An excellent question. Alcohol in general is not contraindicated with antibiotics, with many exceptions. For example FLAGYL and many monobactam antibiotics combined with alcohol are a bad mix and can cause severe nausea and headaches.

Antithyroid Drugs

Iodine is actively concentrated by the thyroid gland (sodium iodide transporter). After oxidation it is bound to thyrosine residues thus forming monoiodothyronine (MIT) or diiodothyronine (DIT). MIT and DITare coupled to triiodothyronine (T3) orthyroxine (T4) and are stored in thyroid follicles bound to thyroglobuline.
