Recently, a relative of mine was prescribed an antibiotic.  I reminded her that there are two important things to remember:

1.       Take your medicine till it is finished, even if you ‘feel better’.  Many people stop taking them, and have a re-occurrence of symptoms within weeks.

2.       Follow up with probiotics within days of beginning the antibiotics to avoid creating an unbalanced micro flora with in your gut.  Antibiotics are a big dose of bacteria killers (good and bad), and the bad bacteria will grow back faster.  Probiotics are best utilized with or shortly after a meal prior to taking antibiotics.  Some probiotics that are effective are yogurt, kefir, and naturally fermented foods such as sauerkraut, olives, soy sauce or kimchee.

3.       Read the directions that you sign off on when you pick up your prescription.  Many are to be taken with foods, others are recommended not to be.  Talk to your doctor or trusted pharmacist to find out details and what foods to avoid that may negate the benefits of the meds. http://www.cincinnati.md/oh/cincinnati/con-article/664341/yeast%20infections%20from%20antibiotics/germs_behind_urinary_tract_infections_becoming_more_resistant_to_drugs.htm

Antibiotics can provide effective relief from a variety of medical issues.  Just remember to protect yourself from additional issues from the fix.
