How Should I Take Acidophilus With Amoxicillin
Not only can,should!: I advise all my patients to take probiotics while on antibiotics. I advise everyone take Sacchromyces Boulardii (sold as FloraStor) and one with multiple strains of acidophilus/bifidus. Look for ones with at least 20 billion bacteria. Advanced Naturals is a quality line and Culturelle is also a good product. This will reduce odds of diarrhea & vaginal yeast. Take at start of meal. Continue after. ...Read more
Can i take a stool softener and a womens laxative while on amoxicillin antibiotics? In the same dose?

Try your local health food store. ...Read more
Sons meds (amoxicillin) says to take two 20mg daily. He did this but at once. Is this bad? Or should he have waited an hour to take the other

But are you sure of the strength? 20 mg is a tiny dose, appropriate for someone who weighs about 5 pounds! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have to take 1g amoxicillin three times a day, how often should I take it? Can it be taken say every 6 hours?
6 hours is fine: If the prescription says 3 times a day (tid), every 8 hours is not the requirement. When it comes to oral antibiotics such as amoxicillin, every 6 hours should be practically just as good. Long answer but that's what i expect of my patients if i write 3 times a day prescription. It means 3 times a day while awake, roughly every 6 hours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
