It is actually much closer to the opposite, where antibiotics will deactivate/kill probiotics when dosed too close together. The need and relevancy of taking probiotics when on an antibiotic is justifiably increased however, as antibiotics are typically not a very “discriminatory” killer.

Antibiotics kill our probiotic bacteria. So knowing the benefits of probiotics, I avoid antibiotics whenever possible. But, you should probably take antibiotics to avoid death or kill serious infections. And if you take probiotics together with antibiotics, you’ll reduce the damage that antibiotics do to our native probiotics.

Official Answer. There is controversy about whether you should routinely take probiotics with antibiotics and the question cannot be answered with a straight yes or no. Evidence for taking probiotics with antibiotics includes a Cochrane review which reported that children who were given a course of probiotics after antibiotics had less diarrhea.

Taking Probiotics with Antibiotics Can Help. Although it may sound counterintuitive to take probiotic supplements while also taking probiotic-killing antibiotics, research shows that it’s beneficial to your gut health to fortify your system with the protective good guys.

There is currently some evidencethat taking probiotics can prevent antibiotic-associated diarrhoea. This effect is relatively small, with 13 people needing to take probiotics for one episode of diarrhoea to be averted.

The answer is that probiotic supplements during antibiotic treatment has been shown to reduce the severity of antibiotic-associated diarrhea. (4) So even though your antibiotics might kill off some of those good gut bacteria, probiotics still reduce the negative side effects of antibiotics.

Antibiotics kill our beneficial bacteria as well as our pathogenic bacteria. Rebuilding the flora due to antibiotic use is vital. However the question is presented frequently, “Do I take probiotics while I’m on antibiotics when the antibiotics are just going to kill the good bacteria anyway?”

Since you’ve already started your antibiotic, start your probiotics as soon as possible. Don’t take the probiotic and the antibiotic at the same time of day. Wait two hours or more after you’ve taken the antibiotic to give it time to make its way out of your stomach and small intestine.
