Floroquinolones and to a lesser extent beta-lactams are negative allosteric modulators of GABAA receptors. That means they work like benzos, except they do the oposite. They reduce the effectiveness of GABA.

Most antibiotics are fine to take during withdrawal - the ones to avoid, fluoroquinolones, can lead to waves in which withdrawal symptoms increase (temporarily)
