Is it ok to take a probiotic while on nexium (esomeprazole), (esomeprazole) if so when is the best time to take probiotic pill, before or after taking nexium (esomeprazole)?

Is it ok to take a probiotic while on nexium (esomeprazole), (esomeprazole) if so when is the best time to take probiotic pill, before or after taking nexium (esomeprazole)?

Yes: I'd take it in the morning. Typically Nexium (esomeprazole) is best taken at night (basal levels of acid are highest at night, so Nexium (esomeprazole) should have its greatest effect, so the theory goes...). So if you take the probiotic during the day, direct effects of either substance on the other is minimized. ...Read more

What's the difference between taking a probiotic in pill form, and consuming fermented foods high in probiotics like kefir?

What's the difference between taking a probiotic in pill form, and consuming fermented foods high in probiotics like kefir?

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. Pros and fermented foods have similar qualities but look for higher number of strains in pros rather than higher amounts. They interact. ...Read more

Do any probiotic pills work on having BV?

Do any probiotic pills work on having BV?

They don't hurt: They are very helpful for the bacterial flora in the GI tract which we are learning is important for more and more things so they don't hurt for BV but they don't work by themselves either. You need to use clindamycin or metronidazole to kill the bacteria (I use them vaginally for patients) and then I recommend using repHresh gel vaginally twice weekly to give the desirable pH to regrow. ...Read more

Whether pill, powder, liquid, in food (yogart), take daily to maintain the probiotic organism population.
