Probiotics

I' d like to know if it' s taking probiotics while I' m on a pill. Or is probiotic an antibiotic?

Yes you can take a probiotic while on the pill, as it is not absorbed into you blood stream.
It is different to an antibiotic; antibiotics are drugs used to kill infectious or disease causing bacteria. Probiotics however are “good bacteria” found naturally in your gut. They protect you and a healthy balance of good bacteria is necessary for a health digestive system. See www.reuteri.com
