Take the probiotics after a meal as this is when your stomach acid is at its lowest. You can take probiotics before, during and after your course of antibiotics.
Probiotics should be taken one hour before a meal or two hours following a meal. Probiotics consist mainly of proteins so there’s a good chance that specific enzymes produced during a meal could break down the probiotic or cause difficulty in attaching to the intestines.
And you should definitely take probiotics before, during and after the course of antibiotics.
Thank you Able. I’m afraid I have to give in to antibiotics. The last days I have been taking tons of cranberry pills, drinking tons of water, lemon, vitamin C. I also bought a natural medicine containing Uva-ursi which actually seemed to help. Unfortunatly it gave me a mild but unplesant allergic reaction. My face and throat started to swollen. I’m so sad it had to come to this. The last couple of weeks I felt like I finally had a break-through in my recovery process. My stomach has been so much better. And now this … It makes me sad, but I need to get rid of my UTI which only seems to get worse …
