Bad to take ACIDOPHILUS?

Recommended Posts

I feel like im taking way too many supplements right now with Doxy, fish&flaxseed oil, zinc, and an herbal supplement.

Im wondering if it will do more harm than good to add in acidophilus. Is it wrong to take them while also taking Doxy?

Thanks alot

I dont think Acidophilus would do any harm - I mean its very healthy for you but then again since it clears out your system it might clear out the Doxy...Im really not sure, you should ask a doctor.

IMO probiotics is the one thing you should absolutely take while on antibiotics. You could drop one of the other supplements if you are worried.

So it doesn't 'wipe out' the antibiotic?

I have to admit, I'd never heard of probiotics acting like that before, I thought they just added good bacteria to your system again?

Take pro-biotics if you are on antibiotics!

It is an absolute must!

If you are worried about them intefering with your antibiotics (doxy/mino/whatever) then take them a few hours after or before...

But yeah take them because without the good bacteria in your gut you will get a nasty, nasty case of diahorea. Not cool.
