I would love to know if anyone has figured out a schedule for doing all of these to where they don't interfere with each other. I've been asking and Googling, but no luck so far. Now I'm trying to cobble something together myself, but mostly I'm just frustrating myself.

It is possible to make it all work, but it can be overwhelming at first but just takes planning for sure.

I would think it depends on your own schedule and the times you awake and go to bed.

You just need to take the binders 2 hours away from ingesting anything else.

Probiotics taken either at bedtime or 1 to 1 1/2 hrs after ABX and/or herbals.

I have been taking the probiotics at bedtime so they have time to work and it just is easier for my schedule.

I only do binders every few days.

Hopefully others will chime in to help too. Take care, Jo

Here is a mock schedule for someone taking antibiotics twice daily before meals:


7:00 a.m. antibiotics
8:00 a.m. (or sooner) breakfast

10:00 a.m. Binder

12:00 lunch and probiotics

5:00 p.m. antibiotics
6:00 (or sooner) Dinner

8:00 Binder

10:00 Probiotics


There are two options in this schedule to take your binder: morning or evening - take your choice.

There's also an option to take probiotics twice daily. If only taking once - I suggest the evening (with this schedule) - so they are in your system longer before the next dose of abx.

Thanks so much. I cobbled together a preliminary schedule for myself. Somebody else sent me one on Facebook. Plus now I have yours. Between the three of them, I think I can construct one that really works. With yours, I like that the antibiotics are followed by food and that probiotics are the last thing of the day (so they have all night to do their thing).

I'll post my finished schedule tomorrow.
