The plant kingdom has served as an unlimited resource of useful drugs, foods, coloring agents, additives, gums and lubricants from long time. Most of the diseases like anti-hypersensitive, anti-helminthes, anti-microbial, antischistosomal and anti-covultant agents have been cured with the help of the medicinal plants. Combination therapy can be utilized to increase the effectiveness of the antibiotics and decrease the toxicity. In present study we get the positive synergistic effect of clove with various antibiotics. The antibiotics in conjugation with the plant extracts increase the area of the antimicrobial resistance caused due to the antibiotics. The positive results show that the antimicrobial activity of the antibiotics increases if the plant extracts are added to the antibiotics.
