Should antibiotic medication after an endoscopic ultrasound be avoided when warned not to be taken with diuretics?

I had an endoscopic ultrasound today. Received Spiro introvienously. Was given a prescription to start Pills tomorrow. Info sheets that the pharmacist provided with the pills warns of serious problems with taking the pills, i.e. don t take with diuretics. Should I avoid taking this antibiotic?

Hello,

since your doctor prescribed the antibiotic, you shouldn't avoid it. Antibiotic prophylaxis after endoscopic ultrasound procedures is not routinely required. The doctor estimates the risk for infection and prescribes (or does not prescribe) antibiotics.

I hope I've answered your question. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Kind Regards,
Dr Panagiotis Zografakis
