Antibiotics are a type of medicine used to prevent the spread of bacterial infections. They can destroy and inhibit the growth of bacteria in the human body. Antibiotics do not affect viral infections, so they will not help with the flu or a cold. Additionally, antibiotics can not only target harmful bacteria but also beneficial bacteria. As a result, the use of antibiotics is often associated with side effects, such as abdominal pain or diarrhea, due to an imbalance in intestinal microflora caused by their consumption. On the contrary, taking probiotics can help restore a healthy bacterial environment and reduce diarrhea symptoms. This is why some doctors recommend taking probiotics, such as Saccharomyces boulardii. Taking probiotics alongside antibiotics has now become the gold standard. It is recommended to take probiotics about 3-4 hours after taking antibiotics to ensure that the effectiveness of both types of products is not reduced.
