I was wondering if anyone takes Acidophilus?  Could it have any interaction with Plaquenil?  It did say it could interact with Immunosuppresive Medications, but listed drugs like Cellcept, MTX, Imuran, etc.
 
I take it in the morning with my first dose of Plaquenil.  Please let me know if anyone has had a reaction to it.  I take 1 billion active culture daily. 
 
 
Your response would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you

Hi annie, they always beat in my head to always always always contact your doctor or pharmacist before taking anything over the counter. I know acidopholus is wonderful for balancing out my system when I have yeast from antibiotics but if it keeps my other meds from working properly it's not worth it. I would suggest you call your pharmacist and ask them to look through your drug list and see if it is safe to take with them. better safe then sorry. Sometimes the most harmless things really can cause problems.
I hope you can take it

Hey annierae, what did you find out? I thought about you earlier I was reading about foods you can eat to get rid of inflmation. It also mentioned acidophilus pills. I can't put it on here though because it was something the advetised to buy and the is one of the rules in the group no advertisments. but you can take what I wrote you and put a few words aon search and it will show up I'm sure.

I am just now getting back to reading some of the replies.  Thank you both.  I talked to my doctor and he said the Acidophilus for fine to take with my meds.  I have had to be on a lot of antibiotics lately and knew I needed some probiotics.  Thanks again.   AnnieRae
