Hi pb,
 
I'm going to make this quick because I got a flare of diverticulitis right now and I'm extremely sick to my stomach due to the antib's (I'm on doxycycline and levaquin).  I'm on Primadophilus Reuteri just like you and I'm concerned about the overload of antib's.  I know the PR's dose is one a day but do you think it's okay to take two a day while I'm on therapy?  I understand if you don't know but I was just wondering since you have been on it for a while.  I'll check back later... I'm just hoping this doesn't put me back in the hospital because it WILL be surgery this time, doc already warned me. sad
 
Hope everyone else is doing okay.
 
Take Care

One website I read that was written by a doctor said he always dosed his patients up on like quadruple dosage probiotics when they were on antibiotics, then like double dosage for several weeks afterwards. Wish I could find the page again, but that was my first introduction to probiotics.

I'd certainly try upping the dose if I was on antibiotics. In fact, I take Culturelle when I'm on them because that's really strong for me (if the amount of gas is any indication), then drop down to yogurt and/or acidopillus pills for three weeks afterwards. That's for regular antibiotics mind--not more than one type, and nothing very strong.

Yeah, thats what I'm trying to avoid so thats why I want to take the probiotics and as much as safe to do so. Hopefully it will keep things like that away.
