Ayurveda/Antibiotic | Liver medicine


QUESTION: hi doctor...
what should be the time gap between antibiotics (allopathic) and herbal liver medicine (liv52, livomap etc.) when taking?

ANSWER: Dear Sanjeev,
Greetings !
Antibiotics destroy the intestine flora so it is good to take liver tonics during take course. In general liver tonics are to be taken one hour before food and antibiotics to be taken one hour after food.

ANSWER: In that case you can take liver tonics two hours after food/antibiotic.
I think Liv-52 DS is the best liver tonic.
No it is not advisable to take any liver tonics with milk.

QUESTION: if i take liver medicine after one hour of food/antibiotic and milk after one hour of liver medicine (i.e. 2 hr of food) is that ok?
for how much time one can take liv52 ds continuously? is it necessary to give some gap in liver med course or can be taken continuously without any gap?
after liv52, which is another good brand?

Yes that's fine to take these medicines.
The duration of liv-52 intake depends on your life style and dietary habits. It's a medicine so it should be taken depending on problem. But if it is taken a supplement then better to take 7 days gap after every 2-3 of continued usage.
Livomin and livotritare also good.
