Cephalexin and Macrobid are effective against almost all gram negative and gram positive bacteria. They are pretty wide spectrum. Certainly staph and strep are on the list but there are an awful lot of other bugs too.

Do you have acne at all? A doctor might prescribe tetracycline long term for that. Or if you have recurrent urinary infections a doctor might consider long term lo dose preventative therapy.

In this day and age of antibiotic resistance docs are understandably shy of prescribing based on a subjective sense of improved well being, but I would think it likely you could find a naturopath type doc who would consider it.

There are other things like intestinal bacterial imbalances that could affect how you absorb vitamins and nutrients -- do you have any IBD type symptoms or other non-GI physical symptoms that change when you take the antibiotics?
