Literally just started my 40 mg 2x a day accutane course, but I have been on antibiotics for acne for about 2 years. The antibiotics would always work for a bit, then wear off until I got a new kind prescribed, but I have decided to go on accutane for a permanent clear.
I hate the idea of taking antibiotics long term, so I feel like this was the best choice to do. But being on antibiotics for 2 years, I definitely lost some of the "good" bacteria (gut flora) so I was wondering if taking probiotics while on the tane would be a good idea?
I have no idea if they would react in anyway, if the probiotics might interfere with the tane, or if it may increase a chance for breakouts. If it would be beneficial, what brand would you recommend? I really just wanna clear this acne and avoid taking any supplements at all, but I know I should take some probiotic to reverse the damage from the antibiotics.
