I tried and tried to avoid it, but my sinuses got the better of me, and I had to get antibiotics for them. I just wasn't on top of things enough, I guess. So I am on a week long course of biaxin (I am allergic to pen. and sulpha). I started yesterday morning, and started taking a probiotic Wednesday evening (digestive advantage-it is what I had on hand, aside from Align, but I don't tolerate Align well). The guy at the pharmacy said to take the probiotic and the antibiotic at different times to help effectiveness.
Even so, for the first time in a few months, I saw some streaks of blood on my stool this morning. Before this ends up in an actual flare, I am wondering what else I should be doing while an these antibiotics to keep the gut working smoothly?
On the upside, my sinuses are already starting to feel better, but I am nervous about this sending me back into a flare.
Thanks for any input...
