My doctor started me on 2 antibiotics a few days ago to treat a pelvic infection. They are doxycycline hyclate and metronidazole. I have a 10 day course. I have been taking probiotics from Jarrow daily an hour or so after taking my antibiotics. I have also been trying to stick to paleo as closely as I can. I have been feeling nauseated and sick since starting the antibiotics so my appetite has been off. I have been avoiding dairy and wheat since they make me feel sick on their own. I am not taking any other supplements right now.
So here are my questions. Is taking probiotics enough when on a pretty heavy duty course of antibiotics? When should one take them? Should I also be taking any other supplements?
Also, this is the first time in my life that I have had to take any antibiotics. I am 31. I am worried this is going to screw me up forever. Please tell me there is hope!
