Antibiotics and Antibacterials
Understanding Drug-Induced Adverse Events
and Nutrient Interactions

Presented by
 Alan Simon, R Ph 

Many commonly prescribed pharmaceutical agents have an adverse side effect profile. They may deplete particular nutrients, or their adverse effects may be mitigated by the use of nutritional supplements, such as probiotics to mitigate antibiotic-induced diarrhea.

Some nutrients or drug combinations need to be avoided in order to prevent adverse effects, or interference with, or undesired amplification of the drug's effect.

Keeping up-to-date on drug-nutrient and drug-drug interactions can be challenging even for the most conscientious healthcare practitioner.

In this lecture, 
Alan Simon, a registered pharmacist, discusses the most common nutrient interactions and depletions with commonly prescribed antibiotics and antibacterial drugs.
