Our expert says:
Taking the probiotics does make a huge difference and reduces the risk of getting antibiotic related diarrhoea by 50%. Some probiotics are very expensive, but ask around, as many brands are cheaper and just as effective. Activia yogurt is also very effective. You have to daily replenish the good bacteria the antibiotics affected to prevent overgrowth of bad bacteria in the bowel.
