I have to take antibiotics as a precaution against Lyme Disease (had a tick, now have a spot, etc). I will be on Amox. for 21 days, 3x per day. In order to not get too sick from the antibiotics, I bought: a big jar of unpasteurized saurkraut, unpasteurized youghurt, a bottle of fancy probiotic tablets, and some kombucha (I know, that is kind of silly). I am also going to try to cut out sugar but not sure if I can totally kick it.
Any other advice would be most welcome. I'm not looking forward to this and feel very stupid that I let a tick bite me. I don't want a yeast problem...the only time that has happened was after taking antibiotics for an infection.
Most important thing to do when you are on antibiotics is take a probiotic
PB8 is a cheap one that is comparable to the top of the line stuff.
You can get it at vitamin shop
take 2 at bedtime
other than that you should be fine with 3 weeks of amoxy
