Thank you for your query.

1. Yes, you may continue your probiotics.

2. In fact, probiotics are frequently prescribed along with broad spectrum antibiotics such as amoxicillin to control the gastrointestinal side effects such as antibiotic associated diarrhea.

I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
