Augmentin and yogurt

Common Questions and Answers about Augmentin and yogurt


Avatar n tn The best thing I found was to eat about half a container of yogurt about 30 minutes before taking the augmentin and then 30 minutes after. It puts the bacteria back in the digestive tract and has been an absolutely wonderful help!
Avatar n tn It sounds like you ahve a yeast infection. When ever I get a yeast infection my vaginal discharge does change I become dry and whatever discharge I do have is very thick (I am sorry for all the info), I also have burning, soreness, and a itch that will make you go crazy. Just because you never suffered like this before doesn't mean anything. I never had yeast infections like I just described untill this pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Although Augmentin kills certain types of bacteria and is used for lower respiratory, ear, urinary and sinus bacterial infections, does not necessarily mean it will get help a sore throat. To find out what type of bacteria is causing the sore throat and which antibiotic will kill that bacteria is to get a swab taken of your throat to identify the bacteria and then the correct antibiotic will be prescribed.
Avatar n tn Have a culture and sensitivity test done to find out the correct antibiotic that the infecting organism is sensitive to and taking this medication for the required amount of days may help to clear infection. Amoxicillin and augmentin can cause bowel discomfort and diarrhea. For any antibiotic replace with lactobacillus, which is the normal bacterial flora. Yogurt is a natural lactobacillus supplement. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I may get one loose stool a day now because of taking probiotic yogurt but the rumbling and a bit of pain hasn't subsided. How long does it usually take for things to go back to normal?
Avatar n tn Then over the last 18 months the following started to happen. First my throat and jaw stated to get sore and hurt then all of the salivary glands started to swell and now have awful taste in mouth along with pain. It also bleeds sometimes in the back of my mouth at my throat sometimes as I massage it with a soft brush and try and push out some of the flid for some realleaf of pain in the area. Skin is constantly pilling off inside of my jaw and around the glands as well.
187666 tn?1331176945 (my nausea seems to be getting worse) Yes, I'm eating low fiber foods for a few days as directed and yes, I'm eating yogurt twice a day. I just don't look forward to 8 more days of this. An encouraging word please?
634590 tn?1293777693 he put me on IV antibiotics (oxidil 1 gram twice a day and augmentin 1.2 gram thrice a day for a week) Then on oral antibiotic for 4 weeks (ciprofloxacin 500 mg twice a day with calcium and vit d-3 alongwith with naproxin sodium). 2 weeks have been passed and 2 left. Pain is gone. im on bed rest. But when i talk feel pain little bit. Due to long use of antibiotics and NASAIDs im facing severe constipation and annal fissure.
Avatar n tn A lot of women can't use the OTC vaginal yeast infection treatments because the cause irritation and frankly they don't just work as well as Diflucan. On the side note, increasing your yogurt intake to prevent yeast infections helps some, but it doesn't have that many live cultures in it. There used to be this product from the makers of Immodium - but i think manufactures have pulled it from the market because it didn't sell well.
Avatar n tn 5 month old was just put on augmentin for an ear infection and already has diarrhea (day 2). Would yogurt help?
Avatar n tn 5 month old was just put on augmentin for an ear infection and already has diarrhea (day 2). Would yogurt help? Mandy --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Mandy : Thank you for your question. The diarrhea associated with antibiotics ( Augmentin has a 45% incidence of watery stools) is self limiting with the discontinuation of the antibiotic. It has to do with an alteration in the normal gut ( bacterial flora ).
Avatar n tn (rib and peg) Had severe sides-recommended by liver specialist to NOT do txt again-until something oral comes along.I have had and have now, cryoglobulenemia, neuropathy (numbness and spasms in legs, feet and hands, body aches and fatigue. I deal by eating vegetarian (no dairy or any meat except maybe fish only), organic as much as possible yoga type exercise.
Avatar n tn It gave me really bad diarreha for 5 of those days. Now I have insane itching and burning in and around my rectum, but no more diarreha. My wife also just had a yeast infection 3-4 days ago and thats when I started to really get the "itch" as well....Is it possible that I have the yeast infection too ? Also when I wipe it smells fishy/ammonia smell too....
Avatar n tn I have a similar condition that has taken me YEARS to properly diagnose-- on my own (doctors were clueless)! It is most likely LB or CV and requires a 7 day treatment with Augmentin 500 mg or bicarbonate sitz baths. Hopefully this site will clarify things for you.
577132 tn?1314270126 That is the Prozac, the Riba, and the Augmentin. Usually I would space them all out a bit but I just wanted to get them down and get on with the day. I managed to get to work (it's only 15 minutes down the motorway thank goodness) and as soon as I arrived I had to lie on the office couch (not a good look for an HOD) and then had to revisit the toilet several times until it became apparent I needed to go back home.
Avatar f tn I was unable to eat anything. I had to force myself to drink fluids and yogurt. I ended up losing 12 pounds in one week. I am 5' 7" and 118 pounds before the surgery. I went in for my one week follow up and was told everything looked great. I asked why I was still feeling so sick and so weak and once again I was told that it was normal and could take 4 - 6 weeks to feel better. I suffered for another week. The nosebleeds continued and I developed a very foul taste and smell.
Avatar f tn I took Augmentin and a nosespray (Astepro). The meds are now done, and the sinus infection appears to have cleared, but the odd smell and taste are still there.
Avatar n tn I took the antibiotic which seemed to clear up what I thought was a sinus infection but I still wasn't feeling better and my glands were very swollen (they still are too a degree). The doctor prescribed Augmentin due to the remaining swollen glands and remaining flu like symptoms. On April 16th, I had tingling in my hands and feelings of pure exhaustion. My blood pressure was lower than normal (for me) and I felt somewhat light headed.
577132 tn?1314270126 Been a good day at work, no drama, some laughs, not too much itching. UTI is still persisting despite being on 500 Augmentin 3 x daily and it really seems to be linked to how much water I drink. I really struggle to drink more than 1.5 liters at the moment. Must. Try. Harder. I am developing a yeast infection down below. Have had thrush like infection on my tongue for the past 2 or 3 months (losing track of time!). Have been eating live yogurt daily but that is clearly not enough.
Avatar m tn I got sick of it so I went to the doctor who checked my ears and said that it did look sore in there and perhaps I had an infection so they prescribed a low dose of amoxicillin. I took about 1/3 of the dose and stopped because the symptoms went away. I didnt like the side effects (bad stomach) so I stopped taking it since the vibrating had stopped. The vibrating came back though after a few days, and it became a constant sense of vibrating.
Avatar n tn Dizziness,occasional headache,tired, fatigue,eyes feel heavy,started saline nasal wash and felt better,then doc had me take,875 augmentin and It has helped,but it does mess with you stomach.Does anyone know if augmentin takes awhile to get really kicking in and do these symptoms seem like a sinus issue?????
Avatar n tn I am now back to almost all liquids. On top of all this I have chronic severe sinusitis and have been on Augmentin for one month.Most recently had an MRI that showed some small irregular white spots that the Neurologist said looked within the normal range. am scheduled for a Ctscan of head and face in two days. I live in an isolated area of Alaska and we do not have access to many specialists. The Prevacid does seem to help some and so does taking digestive enzymes.
5171728 tn?1364667389 Please offer suggestions that I might run by my physician? Thanks so much and keeping ALL of you close to my heart and loving every one of you who's had to endure this mess ... B1essed (thank you!
Avatar f tn it was back and this time it went straight to dry inflamed mode. Augmentin did not help. In fact from all the augmentin I got yeast and/or BV. I was given flagyl which worked for 2 weeks then it all came back with a vengeance. I didn't just have vaginal inflammation but ulcerated sores in my rectum as well. I'm still suffering from that as medications didn't make it completely go away.
174483 tn?1327629077 My daughter recently had an ear infection and was put on a pretty strong antibiotic (Augmentin). The doc suggested I try to give her some yogurt to counteract the antibiotics in that form. Id call your pediatrician tho. The white stuff in her mouth could very well be thrush and the longer you let that go, the worse it'll get.
Avatar n tn On Feb 1 I developed a severe red scratchy throat, and I still had several mouth ulcers. I took Augmentin 500 3x/day for 10days. After the 10days I still had a sore throat that feels like an ulcer down my throat, and I also still had about 10 mouth ulcers as well as swollen gums. I went to my Internal MD and he put me on Medrol dose pack and Levaquin. This initially helped w/ the mouth ulcers but the one down my throat got much worse. I was given a Celestone inj and put on Orapred.
Avatar n tn CD 13 - Noticed signs of a YI, so I started eating yogurt with live cultures in it. CD 14 - Ovulation Day 9 DPO and 10 DPO, temp dropped below my coverline. This makes me nervous because AF isn't due for another 4 days and I have never in my life started this early. Also, my high temps only lasted for 8 days, which would mean I have a very short LP. Lastly, it's been extremely cold in my house, and I refused to turn the heat on.
Avatar f tn My 17 month old DD was diagnosed with strep throat on Friday (I know it is extremely rare for her age, but she had a positive test). Anyway, she is taking Augmentin and has diarrhea. It is not really that bad, but it has made her bottom so raw. I feel terrible for her. She is basically blistered and screams when I go to change her. I am using Butt Cream and Desitin, but they don't seem to be helping much. Is there something else that might help more?
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
