A 17-year-old female asked:
Would it be bad to take an antibiotic such as doryx (doxycycline) for my acne while taking probiotics?

Doxycycline: This antibiotic may kill many of the strains of bacteria contained in probiotics, but beyond that it is not bad in the sense that it is likely to cause further problems.
