What to during 10 days of antibiotic?

Hi everyone,

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?

Thanks!

Yes. Ive heard at least 2 hours spacing, 4 hours even better.

That is ridiculous and dangerous advice. I would downvote it, but I'm not wasting my rep on a driveby.

I'm taking the antibiotics. I'm hoping the probiotics will prevent any Candida issues.

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.
