Having stomach upset after taking antibiotics. How to overcome this?
Question: in taking antibiotics and ir upsets my stomach. how do I overcome this?
Brief Answer: Probiotic is necessary with every antibiotic. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. Please note that intestines are covered with good bacteria. When taking antibiotic, this bacteria get destroyed so the bad bacteria can grow freely. This is the most common reason of abdominal discomfort or pain during antibiotic course. That is why, every time you take an antibiotic, also probiotic should be taken. It should be taken 30 minutes after antibiotic intake. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
