I'm not aware of any antibiotic that must not be used in Gillian Barre Syndrome.

It is not known exactly what causes Guillain-Barre syndrome, but there are some strong clues. Usually it occurs a few days or weeks after a person has had a respiratory or gastrointestinal infection with viruses such as cytomegalovirus (CMV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), or Campylobacter jejuni (40% or more of cases). Therefore, Guillain-Barre is thought to be an autoimmune disorder, meaning that the antibodies created by the body to attack the virus also attack healthy nerve cells and cause damage. So I don't actually think any of the antibiotics are contraindicated. free discount card
