Is it okay to take omeprazole and probiotics together daily?

Is it okay to take omeprazole and probiotics together daily?

Yes, but: Omeprazole use over long-term can cause medical problems down the road--increases infections, bone loss etc...But if this is what you need, then you need it.
It is ok to use both, however.
In general, don't take meds if you don't have to.
If you do, then regular follow-up with your doc who can help monitor you more closely and intervene when needed.

Can you take culturelle probiotic and rephresh pro b together?

Can you take culturelle probiotic and rephresh pro b together?

Sure: Probiotics are just collections of bacteria and the various bacteria do not interact with each other. You can take as many different types as you wish with no negative effects. But there is no evidence that a single probiotic, let alone several at once, cure any specific GI problems. As they are harmless, the only negative effect of taking them is to your pocketbook. ...Read more

Is it safe to take a multivitamin, omega-3 supplement, probiotic, vitamin D3, vitamin K2, and my SSRI antidepressant together daily?

Safe but: Why do you need so many supplements. If you are taking a mixed diet, , none of the supplements other than vitamin D3 are doing you any good.
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.

Is it safe to take a multivitamin, probiotic, fish oil omega-3 supplement, apple cider vinegar, and psyllium husk for fiber together daily?

Is it safe to take a multivitamin, probiotic, fish oil omega-3 supplement, apple cider vinegar, and psyllium husk for fiber together daily?

Yes: These are safe though I wouldn't take them all at once. I advise the multivitamin after breakfast, the probiotic at the start of a meal, the fish oil after lunch or dinner, apple cider vinegar in water separate from meals and the psyllium at bedtime.

Is it okay to take 10 billion CFU's of probiotics daily long term? I've had digestive issues for two years and these get rid of my issues.

Is it okay to take 10 billion CFU's of probiotics daily long term? I've had digestive issues for two years and these get rid of my issues.

Pro mean with: And bio means life. Probiotics help the GI system digest food. Anti means against. So, if one takes excessive antibiotics (which are sometimes needed) they can kill off the good bacteria in our GI systems and we can have digestive problems. LOOK FOR A WIDE VARIETY OF STRAINS RATHER THAN HIGHER NUMBER OF FEWER STRAINS. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Is it okay to take probiotics close to Synthroid (thyroxine)? I know that vitamins & minerals are a no-no, but not sure about the probiotics.

OK for probiotics: Yes, this should not be a problem at all. I like to get my probiotics from food -the natural way, rather than in a capsule or other 'artificial' form. Some foods that contain natural probiotics include yogurt (in all it's forms), sour cream, sauer kraut and kimchi. ...Read more

Is it okay for me to take probiotics with pentasa (mesalamine)?

Is it okay for me to take probiotics with pentasa (mesalamine)?

Yes: You can take probiotic with pentase. You need to take the probiotic three times a day. That is because the active culture from the capsules can not survive and permanently colonize the gut and fight and suppress the overgrowth of the bad bacteria. What I advise my patients is to eat plain yogurt about three times a week and that is good to do the job. You can also use keffir. Food is medicine! ...Read more

Dr. Ohira's Probiotic contains Streptococcus. Is this safe to take?

Safe and beneficial: The form of streptococcus in many probiotics (and yogurts) is streptococcus thermophilus, considered a friendly bacteria that is a normal part of healthy intestinal flora. This is a very different strain of strep than pathogenic alpha and beta-hemolytic streptococci that cause infections.
