Should I be taking a probiotic when I’m taking an antibiotic?

Taking a probiotic with an antibiotic has become so mainstream that it was published as a recommendation for practitioners in the Journal of Family Practice. The reason is rather intuitive: Antibiotics kill off the bad bacteria, but also much of the gut’s good bacteria in the process. This can lead to an off-kilter digestive tract, making probiotics highly beneficial in addressing antibiotic tummy-related troubles. However, we also recommend being consistent with your probiotic supplementation rather than just doing antibiotic “damage control.”
