Hi. My brother had a heart operation and after that his doctor prescribed him sumapen 250mg as a maintenance antibiotic so he can avoid any infection or any complications... I heard taking antibiotics for so long makes your body resistant to it.

While that can be true, it would be far more dangerous, at this point, for him to stop taking it and not follow his doctor's instructions.

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

It really just means that in the future, if he develops an infection, they will most likely have to give him a different antibiotic to eradicate it.

How is he doing, now?
