i have a 2.5 yo ds who was just put on antibiotics. i've been giving him a half capsule full of mine (natural factors double strength acidophilus & Bifidus 10 billion per capsule) and one tablet of his (nature's way primadophilus kids once daily 3 billion per tablet) spread out throughout the day. is that too much for him? it okay to take iron with probiotics?

Not at all unless he has a negative reaction like die off.

Compared to homemade yogurt/kefir, capsules are quite weak actually.
