Yeast medication: If you feel like you have a yeast infection then it is reasonable to try an over the counter yeast medication. These are available at any pharmacy. Probiotics are not likely to treat a true yeast infection

Just had big dental surgery and finished 7 days of amoxicillin. May it be wise to take probiotics to increase good bacteria for an unsettled stomach?

Just had big dental surgery and finished 7 days of amoxicillin. May it be wise to take probiotics to increase good bacteria for an unsettled stomach?

Yes to Probiotics: "pro"-biotics put good organisms into your gut (unlike "anti"-biotics which kill bacteria) & include: lactobacillus, acidophilus, bifidobacter, sachromyces boulardes, to name a few. Most are available over-the-counter & need to be taken daily to maintain the probiotic organism population. Benefits include: less gas, regulated bowels, prevent infections, improve digestion, decrease inflammation.

Monitor Closely: GI symptoms from antibiotics are common. However, if the diarrhea persists after discontinuing antibiotics or is severe you need to see and MD to rule out a possible Clostridium Difficile infection. This infection is treatable and can become quite serious if not treated.

GI good idea: It sounds like you are doing all the things that you should on your part. You may could ask your gi, if apt not until later in week, if they would be ok with you trying a fleet enema, (sodium bisphosphate) but with colitis (depending on the type), you really should have that discussion with your GI doc....Sooner than later.

Is it healthy to take probiotics every day?

Probiotics: Hi Isaac, my understanding is that taking probiotics daily can be beneficial. Such as the yogurt variety. However, there are many supplements and dietary products out there so be careful. In addition, you may have certain medical/dietary concerns unaccounted for. My recommendation is to discuss your probiotics with your PCP and/or a registered dietitian/nutritionist to confirm.
