Picked up a minor ear infection on holiday - had it flushed out and after a few days of "Sofradex" drops it seems okay. Doctor also prescribed "Ofloxin 400" (5 days at 2 per day). Does any one happen to know:
- are anti-biotics proven to have an adverse effect on running performance?
- if so, for how long are they likely to affect my performance after I've finished taking the course?
(I've an important race on 23rd August that I've trained long and hard for and therefore intend to delay taking the anti-biotics until the day after - if in the meantime the ear flares up again I will of course have to start taking the dam things straightaway.)
