Antibiotics

Recommended Posts

I was prescribed an antibiotic yesterday for strep. I am obsessing over stomach upset and diarrhea from said antibiotic. I am eating activia yogurt to help with the gut flora. I need to stop obsessing. I woke up this morning with a grassy belly and I needed to use the restroom. This has me in a tail spin and I have only had 2 doses so far.

In December 2019 I had to take an antibiotic for a gum abscess. It was a strong antibiotic and I had to take it 3 or 4 times a day. I figured the risks of any antibiotic issues were outweighed by there benefit and you need to think the same way. A strep infection is nothing to play around with, so taking the antibiotic is better then the strep. I would try to eat food when you take it, which will lessen any side effects. It worked well for me. Hope you feel better.

Thank you, Marc. I’ve have been taking it like I was told to. Tummy is a bit upset but I guess that’s normal.

My GI physician told me to take Florastor everyday, which I have done for many years.
