Antibiotics ?

I was not sure what the best board to ask this question but here goes . My 10 year old son got strep I think half of the kids in his school also got it anyway the dr. prescribed Amoxicillin 10 ml two times a day for 10 days personaly I am not a big fan of antibiotics

I know they kill the good bacteria in the intestinal trac but I think there are times that they are necessary so what is advisable should my son do probotics while taking the antibiotic and an additional couple weeks or so ?

Re: Antibiotics ?

Hi Lawrence,
This is one of those times when he does need the antibiotics...but yes, giving him some probiotics while he is on them is not a bad idea. They make childrens probiotics now- I saw an ad for childrens Align recently.

If the whole school has gotten strep, which isnt uncommon, he needs these antibiotics to prevent him from getting it again.
Hope he feels better soon!
