Antibiotics AND probiotics?

Am I counteracting my probiotic supplement with my oral antibiotics???

I feel like this is so ridiculous, but I've always heard you should take probiotics after long term antibiotic usage. Of course, I don't know when I'm getting off the stupid antibiotics and keep getting yeast infections from the antibiotic use. So, probiotics, yea or nay?



You know this is funny, as I am on antibiotics now for reasons other than HS. I didn't feel adverse affects from taking both, but I did decide to stop the probiotics cause anti and pro are opposite. If you eat dairy you can try yogurt or keef to help in avoiding the yeast issues. I hope someone else will reply to this question. Have a great day!

It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
