    Probiotics with Antibiotics...Is Yogurt Enough??

    I've heard a lot of talk about probiotics in cunjunction with antibiotic use. Will eating a cup of yogurt daily provide enough "good bacteria", or should I be taking a supplement too? Thanks

    I think it depends on your body and how long you have been taking antibiotics. I think yogurt is fine when prescribed antibiotics for 2 weeks, but the course of treatment for acne is usually really long. So, I bet probiotics would be helpful. I sure sign that your body doesn't have enough of the "good bacteria" is if you get a yeast infection (if you are a woman).

    I would take them if I were you. I took a lot of antibiotics for acne when I was in my 20ies (for years!) and wish I knew about probiotics then. Not having enough good bacteria can have an effect on the colon and liver. I often wonder if my fatigue, headaches, eczema, acne, frequent yeast infections, and allergies have anything to do with my liver needing a good detox. I haven't taken antibiotics for acne in over 10 years. I just recently started taking probiotics. Oh, If you are looking to buy probiotics and live in the US, I got mine at Trader Joes. Also, check out the thread on colon cleanse. They discuss probiotics a lot there.

    thanks for the reply I've been taking doxy for a little over a year. I just halved my dosage, and will go off it completely if my acne doesn't get a lot worse. What are the probiotics called at Trader Joes? Just "probiotics"? thanks!

    They are in a white bottle with a blue label and it just says Probiotic dietary supplement. It has lactobacillus acidophilus 2 billion cfu and bifidobacterium lactis 2 billion cfu.

    I have been on Doxy for about 5 months and I try to eat yogurt every day. I haven't been getting any yeast infections ever since I started doing this so I think it is really good to eat alot of yogurt. But I think yogurt is GROSS so I kinda force myself to eat it. haha.
