    Antibiotics can make you feel awful. I am allergic to one type and others made me feel sick, increased my abdominal pain and gave me looser stools and thrush which I had to take more medication for. Try yoghurt after your antibiotics to rebuild your good gut flora which can be lost after antibiotics. IBS can also make urinary problems worse.

    Hey there,

    I also agree that you need to re-balance your gut flora after the antibiotic course. It is true yogurts and kefir can be a good source of probiotics but sometimes, like in your case, you might be needing something richer than yogurts. I have used and would recommend probiotic supplements. These are just like the yogurts, containing healthy good bacteria that will help to correct and balance gut flora and improve your overall well being.
