Probiotic 2 hours before or 4 hours after the antibiotic.
Probiotics are very important! Antibiotics kill off all of the bugs in your guts - good and bad. Probiotics help repopulate (sp?) the good bugs you need in your guts! Remember - start small, build from there, and you may have some excess gas when you start the probiotic - it should go away in a few days to a week.
Feel better soon!
