Brief Answer:
Yes

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You are concerned about taking the Enterogermina and Floratil with an antibiotic. I would definitely say yes because the agents you mention are probiotics and we encourage taking probiotics while on antibiotics. This will help prevent diarrhea associated with the antibiotic. So yes we encourage these probiotics while you are on antibiotics for the sinus infection

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
