Babylac Powder Lactic Acid Bacillus
Yes: Don't expect any miraclesGet a more detailed answer ›
Hi, if I take lactic acid bacillus over a long term (6-8 months) to reduce IBS or other stomach issues, it has caused acidity and pain in upper stomach region.
Not likely: Typically, lactobacillus is taken in a capsule that doesn't even dissolve until it gets through your stomach. You probably have another gastrointestinal issue, possibly H. Pylori in the upper digestive tract responsible for the acidity and pain. See your physician about treatment for this. ...Read more
I m taking doxycycline and lactic acid bacillus capsules for the last 4 days, i m feeling weak, is it due to this antibiotic?
What is the difference between doxycycline hyclate and Doxycycline and lactic acid Bacillus? Which is better for acne?
Big picture: Never use an antibiotic for acne without some non-antibiotic topical therapy as well. Doxycycline plus toipcal benzoyl peroxide or a retinoic acid derivative is more likely than not to clear moderate acne. The bacteria are added for glamor and will probably not help. Remember not to take a tetracycline with milk, iron, or calcium. ...Read more
I was prescribed Doxycycline and lactic acid bacillus capsules and Levocetrizine dihydrochloride tablet, along with gel for acne and dark spots, just wanted to know if that will help?
Doxycycline can: Doxycycline, taken orally, is very effective for certain types of acne (inflammatory). Usually topical antibiotics would be tried first. The lactobacillus is likely to help offset potential side effects of doxycycline. The levocitirizine is an allergy medication very much like Zyrtec (cetirizine) but with less potential to cause drowsiness; I don't think that prescription is related to your acne. ...Read more
I have acne and dark spots on my face, would doxycycline and lactic acid bacillus capsules help?i have oily skin
Manage it: The dark spots must fade on their own. Tetracycline must never be used for acne without a topical agent such as benzoyl peroxide. Lactobacillus pills are a waste of money for this and most other disease. You would do well to get with a competent mainstream physician and an evidence-based holist. Best wishes. ...Read more
Can we take lactic acid bacillus with milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) to normalise intestine flora and resolve hard stool problem during pregnency?
I have mouth ulcer and the doctor has recommended B-complex and doxycycline and lactic acid bacillus capsules. Are these medicines okay?
Mouth ulcers: What was the diagnosis?? That's the important question. The cause will determine the treatment. Was the "doctor" a physician or dentist? What you mentioned regarding medicines are fine, but will they cure or prevent the ulcers? That's a question we cannot determine over the internet without examining you and knowing your medical and dental history. ...Read more

(Ciprofloxacin and Tinidazole) & (lactic acid bacillus) ...is it safe to use lactic acid bacillus??
Safe but unhelpful:
You may take so-called probiotics but there is not good evidence that these supplements are useful.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Ciprofloxacin and Tinidazole & lactic acid bacillus & Rabeprazole....is it safe use of lactic acid bacillus??
Safe, +/- helpful: Your doctor is trying to protect you against disruption of intestinal bacteria by the antibiotics. Lactobacillus is one of those treatments that seems to make sense for this purpose, but rarely is helpful. However, it won't hurt, and you should follow your doctor's advice. ...Read more
Can I take probiotic supplements like lactic acid bacillus while taking antibiotics like amoxicillin?
Small amount: Lactic acid build up can occur from a variety of causes. Most times this is a limited disturbance due to a severe illness in hospitalized patients (sepsis or liver failure). It can also occur during aggressive exercise, but is generally never severe enough to require medical attention. ...Read more
Increased blood flow:
Lactic acid levels rise when blood flow is decreased, as in shock. Increasing blood flow with fluids and drugs will restore normal metabolism and clearance of elevated blood Lactic Acid levels. In fact, we monitor the blood levels of Lactic Acid 2 adjust and determine effectiveness of shock treatment in the intensive care unit.

Needs to be treated: Lactic acid is produced by tissues/ cells that are not getting enough oxygen. The most common cause is due to patient's blood pressure being so low that organs such bowel/ kidneys/ brain are not getting enough oxygen. This always has to be treated, as it can be life threatening. Cause of low blood pressure needs to investigated, however quite often is due to an infection causing severe sepsis. ...Read more
Interval training: During training, you need to maintain a constant aerobic level with intermittent high intensity bursts. After these bursts do not stop or slow down but go back to an aerobic level so that your body can adapt to metabolizing lactic acid while maintaining the aerobic capacity. Example: if you run 6 miles at an aerobic pace of 8-9 min/mile, do 30 second intervals at 6 min/mile but don't slow to 10 min/ ...Read more
How do I treat uneven skin? I have Asian skin & the discoloration is creating an ugly line, division of dark & fair. I tried lactic acid, not helping.
Hydroquinone: The best treatment for uneven skin is hydroquinone (hq). It is great for freckles, sun damage, and can help scars. Do not use on moles or anything you're unsure of. The highest strength available otc is 2%. It is not very effective. For something more effective (4-10%), visit your dermatologist. ...Read more
Depends on the cause: Lactic acidosis is associated with a variety of conditions, including: shock, liver disease, kidney failure, medications (e.g. Metformin), some inborn errors of metabolism, etc. It's not so much the effects of the lactic acid; symptoms are usually the result of the underlying problem, and dealing with that underlying problem is the primary goal. ...Read more
Compensatory: Many things can cause an increased production of Lactic Acid in our bodies. When our oxygen levels or delivery of oxygen are lower than what we need, our bodies will produce lactic acid. They may increase with strenuous exercise or by serious conditions such as sepsis, heart failure, or shock. Also, a medication used to control glucose in diabetics called metformin may increase our lactic acid. ...Read more
Don't stop: So, Lactic Acid builds up from working out — exercising. If you stop rather than go through a cool down period — it will build up and cause pain. You need to — if a runner — go to a slow run/jog/walk at the end of your run — to continue good blood flow and removal of the lactic acid. ...Read more
No they're not: Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the peels before reaching FULL adulthood can be dangerous to the still developing skin. The skin has not reached its full thickness even during the teen years yet, so doing a peel could take it down too far in the skin layers and expose layers of the skin that should not be exposed. This can lead to severe pain, infection, poor healing and disfigurement. ...Read more
