Metronidazole and Doxytet
My Domestic is taking these two tablets and some others as well, should I be concerned as we share the same toilet facility? As I heard that these are for STD''s. Please advise.

Hi Anna

These are broad-spectrum antibiotics and are used for a variety of infections, not only STD's. Should you however be concerned, I'd suggest using a disinfectant cleaner in your bathroom.
