Please see this as a hypothetical question in regards to having access to just several gastro-resistant pills in an isolated setting where swallowing them as usual would be too short a course to be effective and breaking the pills would allow the stomach to destroy them. I would like to know if this is a viable way to administer a measured amount of the antibiotic once powdered. I'm asking that, if necessity required it, whether nasal inhalation, insertion under the prepuce or perhaps applied to the rectum would be effective.

Yes, hypothetically it would be effective. However, rather than powder it yourself, in most countries you can get liquids or suppositories of antibiotics to take.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of antibiotics as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Oh, I forgot to address the inhalation issue, that is definitely not safe to do with a medication that has not been specifically made to be used that way.

Most tablets contain fillers and not all of them are meant to be broken down by the human body, they are normally just expelled as waste. Using them in such a manner could be dangerous, because it could cause blockages, which could harm lung capacity or result in lung failure.
