So here is the short version:

I usually see a homeopath for all my family medicinal needs. We just went through a move, both kids had ear infections and they are both on the mend after a visit to our Dr. I also took homeopathics over the past ten days, and only feel slightly better. We just moved, it's been raining and I have a NEW full time job, as well as a consulting contract. In short: I cannot afford to be sick any longer...having called in for the past week. I am the sole breadwinner right now.

I am emotionally drained, tired of nursing, and just anxious to feel good and so I wonder: can I take antibiotics? will they interfere w/ my daughters treatment? (which is expensive) If I take pro-biotics will that work?
I have a call in the the Dr. but I believe she is out of town. I need to go to another Dr. today.....

I know there are antibiotics that are compatible with breastfeeding. Just make sure to ask your dr to prescribe one. The probiotics will most likely just keep you and baby from getting thrush as a result of the antibiotics. I don't know anything about how they will interact with the homeopathic treatments, so no help there.

Sorry you are so sick. Feel better soon!
