If you take yogurt, separate the dose of Cipro (ciprofloxacin) from it. ...Read more

If you have a history of C. difficile, it may be useful to take probiotics, however. Otherwise, studies do not support their routine use. Having said that, there are not usually many side effects, if you do decide to try them. Good luck ...Read more
