As Jo said, there is a difference technically, but you may not be able to tell by the way you feel.
You are in the time period where typically a herx after switching abx would occur, so I would encourage you to assume it's a herx.
You can use the Alka Seltzer Gold I believe 2 hours after taking your abx or probiotics. I'm sure others will be along soon that have used it and can give you better 'instructions' though.
I also agree with Jo on increasing the other types of detoxing as well. You need to have as many of the detox pathways working as best as they can to keep the herxing down.
