Common medications can accumulate in gut bacteria, says a new study reported September 08 2021 in Medical Express. Research on the subject was conducted by Medical Research Council (MRC) Toxicology Unit at the University of Cambridge and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Germany. The building up of drugs in our gut bacteria can alter bacterial function and reduce the drug’s effectiveness.

15 common drugs were combined and tested with 25 different gut bacteria to see how they interacted. The researchers found that the drug accumulated in the gut bacteria demonstrated some signs of reduction in the availability of the drug to the rest of the human body. It is believed that the accumulation altered bacterial function, believed to be linked to side-effects. The research was first reported in Nature.
