There are some studies that have shown that administering several antibiotics or drugs at the same time, can make them compete with each other ... Is there a competition between mino and rifampin for crossing the blood brain barrier? That is, can one molecule prevent the other from penetrating? I'm not worried about this, it's curiousity but it would be interesting if someone can contribute information.

there is some study in lancet, for example that shows that amoxicillin works better without probenecid, because when both are administered, both compete to enter the bbb and one molecule, overlaps the other.

I haven’t seen anything about the abx competing with each other.
