Flucloxacillin and stomach problems

PostPosted: Tue Jul 14, 2015 2:44 pm

Hello!

I'm on my 4th course of flucloxacillin 500mg tablets this year - the last three times for a skin infection which keeps recurring :(

I'm fine with taking antibiotics and such, but I am well aware that taking this again will cause me stomach problems, particularly bloating, indigestion and bowel issues.

Does anyone know if pre-biotics or pro-biotics would help to minimise this? They've been suggested to me a couple of times by well meaning non-immunosuppressed friends. so I thought I'd check in with the more knowledgable folks.

Thanks!
