After taking antibiotics for a couple of days, I feel a general sense of weakness in my body. This includes physical weakness (tiredness, shortness of breath) and mental weakness (difficulty of performing normal cognitive tasks, impossibility of performing more difficult ones).

Is there a way to reduce this general weakness when on antibiotics, so as to remain as close to normal functioning as possible?

    Why are you taking antibiotics? The first step would be to avoid unnecessary antibiotic prescriptions. – Narusan Jun 11 '17 at 19:17

    I have a severe infection that is causing internal bleeding. – Klangen Jun 12 '17 at 8:17

    Okay, that's a very good reason to be taking antibiotics. – Narusan Jun 12 '17 at 15:38
  • I would go to your doctor and ask them this question. Fatigue and tiredness might be one of the side effects of the specific antibiotics you are taking. – Narusan Jun 13 '17 at 14:37
