I got probiotic pills which is in my fridge. Can I take that 30 minutes before taking doxy?

No - because the doxy will kill the good bacteria from the probiotics.

So I would wait two hours after your doxy.

If you can take a dose of probiotics a couple hours after your last doxy dosage - and let the good bacteria populate in your gut over night - that is ideal.

I agree with Girlie. LLMD says at least 2 hours away from antibiotics so we do at night as well to give them more time to work, whenever possible.

Remember dairy away from doxy also, if you do dairy.
