    Should probiotics be taken with antibiotics?


    A dermatologist I saw recently treated my staph infection, which caused two skin lesions, with an antibiotic called doxicillin. I took two ten day cycles of this per his advice.

    This treatement did not work. I just spoke to my thyroid/adrenal dr and he told me antibiotics can really screw you up if not taken with probiotics.

    I feel really lousy this week, horrible actually.

    Has anyone else heard that probiotics should be taken with antibiotics?

    I vaguely remember feeling lousy after taking antibiotics years ago.

    I stopped my antibiotic cycle last Friday, should I still take these?

    Should I be taking them anyway?

    hardasnails may have better advice.

    I would use probiotics for the next two weeks and latter on from time to time and definitely when having loose stool.

    Damn....you guys are good.....

    I started getting loose stool about a week ago and have gradually felt worse since.

    I specifically asked the dermatologist if antibiotics would make me feel bad....he said no....ugh.

    Yes.

    Yes...for a minimum of 2 months @ high potency, then a maintenance thereafter...
