Should I take Probiotics with My Antibiotics

Many of us are aware that taking antibiotics can negatively impact the friendly bacteria in your stomach.

Probiotics & Antibiotics

As a result, some people choose to take probiotics after their course of antibiotics finishes. However, waiting till your antibiotics are finished could be too late!

Whilst taking antibiotics, many people suffer from side effects, such as diarrhoea, stomach aches, thrush, or lower energy levels. Due to the negative effects of these side effects, it is estimated that 1 in 5 people do not finish their full course of antibiotics before stopping taking them.

It is important that we finish our course of antibiotics every time that we have been prescribed them. This is because it is a huge contributing factor to something called antibiotic resistance. Antibiotic resistance occurs when bad bacteria (pathogens) are not fully eliminated by the antibiotics. Therefore they are able to become immune to the antibiotics!

Some people are concerned that an antibiotic will kill the probiotics, and so it is a waste of time. In fact, the opposite is true, and the probiotics which are especially helpful alongside antibiotics can survive to reach the gut and help protect against the side effects.

The best probiotic strains to take alongside your antibiotics are Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 and Lactobacillus rhamnous Rosell-11. Because of this, we recommend taking OptiBac Probiotics For Those on Antibiotics.
