Probiotics Before Antibiotics

[fa icon="calendar'] Jun 5, 2017 10:11:49 PM / by Winter Ninivaggi

If you must take antibiotics.Starting probiotics within a couple of days before the first antibiotic dose could cut the risk of Clostridium difficile infection among hospitalized adults by more than 50%.

The infection results in a disruption of the bacteria in the colon causing inflammation. It causes diarrhea, belly pain and fever. In a recent study, a significant difference was found between antibiotic patients who used probiotics and those who did not.

The protective effect of the probiotics wanes the longer the patient waits to start supplementing with the antibiotics and there is very little effect seen when the probiotics are taken during the antibiotic treatment. The trials included 12 probiotic formulas containing Lactobacillus, Saccharomyces, Bifidobacterium, and Streptococcus, either alone or in combination. Probiotics were not associated with adverse effects in the trials.
