The body will require an average of six to twelve hours in order to eliminate antibiotics in the body. Depending on the mode of antibiotics intake, lifestyle, age and health status, the antibiotic can even take longer to be eliminated. What to understand before the use of antibiotics?

Although an antibiotic's half-life equals half the time it takes to leave an individual's system, it takes five half-lives for the drug to clear a person's system completely, according to HealthTap. Each drug has its own specific half-life, so different antibiotics remain in the system for different lengths of time.

Amoxicillin has a relatively short half-life of around 1 to 1.5 hours (60 to 90 minutes) in healthy adults. For healthy adults, amoxicillin should be cleared from your system within 24 hours. In those with decreased kidney function, complete elimination of amoxicillin could take 2 to 4 days.

For example amoxicillin is an antibiotic having a half life of about one hour ( 61.3min) . About 60 percent of its initial concentration is removed through the urine within 6 -8 hours. It takes 4-5 half lives of a drug to be completely (94 to 97% ) removed by the body.

After 6 half-lives (6 to 9 hours) the drug would be out of your system. Now compare that to the antibiotic, levofloxacin, which has an elimination half life of around 6 to 8 hours. It would take around 36 to 48 hours for your body to be clear of levofloxacin.

The time required to recover from antibiotics is somewhere between zero and infinity. Antibiotics target bacterial proteins and (for the most part) have no direct effect on human proteins, cells or tissues.

These symptoms usually disappear by themselves a few days after stopping antibiotics. However, antibiotics can leave your body “out of sync”; this is because antibiotics kill not only the bacteria behind your infection, but also any friendly bacteria in your body, such as your intestinal flora.

To begin, probiotics will not deactivate the antibiotic or make them not work.
