Occasional abdominal pain after a 14 days of 2g of amoxicillin a day. Constant pain during. Not as bad anymore how long can it last. Taking probiot?
Until you heal:
Your GI distress will last until your gut heals from the injury caused by the medicine. Probiotics are a great idea. We offer packets of 225 billion to take every 1-3 days for a few doses to get through this more quickly. You might also minimize any intake of sugar, soda, etc. As they might slow healing and restoration of your gut.
