Antibiotics act by reducing or killing bacteria on or within the body, this can include the bacteria in the gut, which results in a dysbiosis. Using probiotics and prebiotics can help to limit this dysbiosis.
Where possible the antibiotic and the probiotic should be given at different times (at the opposite ends of the day if feasible). If not, the antibiotic and probiotic should be given more than 2 hours apart.
