Yes: Not only can you, but since it sounds like you are having gastrointestinal symptoms it is wise to take probiotics. See this series of articles for more on natural approaches for intestinal issues: http://chriskresser.Com/heartburn if you are having irritable bowel problems consider the fodmap diet: http://stanfordhospital.Org/digestivehealth/nutrition/dh-low-fodmap-diet-handout.Pdf.

Probiotics: Yes, while probiotics thrive in an acid environment, neither medication will interact. Antibiotics will destroy probiotics.
