I'm on antibiotic called Cefadroxil, or Duricef, 500mg twice daily for 10 days. What should I be doing in terms of probiotics and food in order to maintain healthy flora?
Should I avoid sugars for a while during and after the course? I was thinking about avoiding fruits. I will eat vegetables. Are cooked carrots and turnip roots too carb heavy or am I ok? What about starches?
I read that a C diff infection could be a concern from these antibiotics, what could I do to make sure I don't get one?
I will have goat milk kefir, pickles, strong probiotic capsules and powder, and maybe some kombucha available to restore flora. Is it worth taking probiotics during the course?

I think so, but take them as far away from the antibiotic as possible, as there could be antagonism between to the two, reducing efficacy. Also, ask your doctor.
