Can I take probiotics with antibiotics?

Yes, you can absolutely take probiotics with antibiotics!

When should I give probiotics with antibiotics?

While you can take antibiotics and probiotics at the same time, we recommend separating your probiotic supplement from your antibiotic by two hours.

This separation will reduce the number of beneficial bacteria in your probiotic being killed by the antibiotic in your digestive tract.

How long should I take probiotics after antibiotics?

We recommend continuing to take a probiotic for approximately two weeks after your antibiotic regimen has completed. We recommend Theralac because our blend of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria probiotic bacteria will colonize your entire digestive tract.

You can continue to support the growth of beneficial bacteria after antibiotics by eating a diet rich in high-fiber foods like fruits and vegetables.

Why should I take a probiotic after antibiotics?

You take a probiotic after antibiotics because an antibiotic will kill both the good and bad bacteria throughout your digestive tract. Beneficial microbes like probiotic bacteria support the healthy structure and function of your digestive tract and help your body digest food and absorb nutrients. Introducing a probiotic either during or after an antibiotic regimen will support microbial balance.
