Hi Mom,What about taking a probiotic when you are on the antibiotics? I was thinking if I took some at night, a few hours after my evening dose it might help me hold my ground. I realize the antibiotics would try to kill them all too. I am grasping with that, I know, but I am weary.
I take probiotics regulary as I don't eat dairy so yougurt is not an option for me although I did find one made from coconut milk that I think I might try. I know there are a couple of probiotics especially made to use while on antibiotics. They are more heavy duty and I think you use them for a shorter period of time until your system gets back to normal. One I was reading about recently is Florastor which looks like it is doctor recommended.(not trying to sell them or push them on anyone, just letting you know as info). You might want to google them and see if it is something you might like to try. It says it is available in most drug stores. I haven't used it but would definitely consider it if I have to go on meds again. Good Luck!
