How to stop ABX associated diarrhea in 4 y/o? He's taking probiotics and eating yogurt. Amoxicillin is for strep. 3rd day of ten, very loose stools
For the most part: Yogurt or other fermented foods are okay to take during/after antibiotic treatment. Antibiotics take care of the bad bacteria, but can also get rid of the good bacteria in our gut. It is helpful to eat fermented, probiotic-rich foods to help replenish the lost good bacteria. The only reasons not to eat yogurt is if you have a dairy allergy/intolerance or if it's made with a lot of added sugar. ...Read more

" antibiotic pills can remain potent for a couple of years after their expiration date. Amoxicillin stays in the bloodstream at effective levels for less than a day after the last dose. It is a short acting antibiotic, and is usually dosed 2-3 times a day for that reason. ...Read more
