Help the intestines when taking antibiotics


All my readers have a good day!

FROMI've known the line-up for a very long time, probably 8 years ago, for sure, and he never let me down, if it was a problem with the intestines. But this time I want to tell you about Lineksk, not as a remedy for diarrhea and nausea, but as a protective agent when taking antibiotics.

- treatment and prevention of dysbiosis.

Dysbacteriosis is manifested by diarrhea, dyspepsia, constipation, flatulence, nausea, vomiting, belching, abdominal pain; allergic reactions are possible.

CEne at it or him to put it mildly not small - 565 rubles for 48 capsules, at what I have noticed, that every year its price raises rubles on ten. According to my observations, the most expensive is a sachet for children.

  • For 48 capsules
  • 32 capsules each
  • By 16
  • Sasha for children of 10/20 pieces
  • Linex Forte for 10/20 capsules

Lineks at reception of antibiotics

HI was given these pills by a dermatologist when she prescribed antibiotics to me for Clarithromycin from small watery pimples on the whole face. The entire course lasted 10 days and antibiotics, and Linex. I took it three times a day for two tablets, that is, for the entire course I took 60 tablets = 2 packs (one for 48 tablets), the other for 16.

The drug is prescribed inside after eating, capsules should be washed down with a small amount of liquid. Children under 3 years of age and patients who can not swallow the capsule should open it, pour the contents into a spoon and mix with a small amount of liquid.

Newborns and children under 2 years of ageappoint 1 capsule 3 times / day.

Children aged 2 to 12 years- 1-2 capsules 3 times / day.

Adults and children over 12 years of ageappoint 2 capsules 3 times / day.

Duration of treatment depends on the cause of development of dysbacteriosis and individual characteristics of the organism.

TOapsules are not very large, so it's easy to drink them, but sometimes you can swallow it so that it literally gets across your throat, and do what you want! However, I have a friend who can not swallow tablets in any way, so she just took it and poured the entire contents of the capsule into a glass of water, and then drank. By the way, you can drink tablets at any time, regardless of the intake of food, I tried to drink for 1-1.5 hours before taking antibiotics.

TAs there were no complaints about the intestines, I did not have and I was taking Linex for prevention, no improvement or results noticed that she drank that she did not drink, so I decided to conduct a small experiment - to observe the condition of her beautiful skin.

TOAs you can see from the photos below, my face is not ice to put it mildly and that I just did not do it with him, and that I just did not try. Throughout the course, I did not have a single pimple, but I associate this with taking antibiotics. BUT! This is not my first experience of treating acne with the help of Linex, and the third one, if my memory serves me right. And for all these times I did not have any improvements from the skin, in principle, this was to be expected, since all dermatologists insist that the condition of the face is not related to the digestive tract, unless, of course, you have allergy.

Lineks at a poisoning (from a nausea and a diarrhea)

DOde four or even five years ago I got a good poisoned chicken, it was bought by unknown where and made by unknown people. At first I was just sick and nauseous, in such cases I usually. I remember well that then I ate yogurt and not just one! All night I so rinsed, that it seemed to me, now all organs to spit out. The temperature lasted several days at about 38. Then the doctor prescribed Linex, and a miracle! I felt much better the next day. the temperature dropped and I felt fine, the whole course took about 10 days, maybe a little less. In general, he helped me then well. By the way, after that incident, I did not eat meat any more.

There was no undesirable interaction between Linex and other drugs.

The composition of the drug Linex allows you to take it simultaneously with antibiotics and chemotherapeutic agents.

It is not recommended to drink Lineks with hot drinks and take with alcohol at the same time.

The patient should see a doctor if, before starting the drug, he has a body temperature above 38 ° C, there is blood or mucus in the stool, diarrhea lasts more than 2 days and is accompanied by acute pain in the abdomen, dehydration and weight loss, in the presence of chronic diseases (AIDS, sugar diabetes).

In the treatment of diarrhea, it is necessary to recover lost fluid and electrolytes.

Here is a list of some of the cheaper analogues of Linex:

  • Bifidumbacterin- about 100 rubles, also took it earlier with antibiotics.
  • Lactobacterin- about 150 rubles, was assigned to my mother for prevention.

Outcome:In my experience, Lineks copes well with its task, namely, it helps against diarrhea, nausea, poisoning and when taking antibiotics, but not for the purpose (from acne and skin problems), he is unlikely to will help.

Prohibited foods when taking antibiotics

Hello, my dear visitors!

Are there any among you who have never used antibiotics in their lives? It seems to me that most of us got acquainted with this kind of medicine as a child.

Sometimes we drink these pills, without hesitation, with what they combine. But it depends on this, how effective will be the treatment. What can not be eaten with antibiotics? I am ready to answer this question.

Why are antibiotics harmful?

Most of us underestimate the danger to the body, which is represented by antibiotics. They not only negatively affect the liver, but also kill the beneficial microflora of the stomach and intestines.

However, in order to cure the disease caused by pathogenic bacteria, we have to take them. Therefore, our task with you is to stimulate the action of antibiotics so that the disease soon disappears, and we did not have to be treated again.

But there is another problem: dysbacteriosis after taking medications.
Is it possible to "populate" the gastrointestinal tract with useful bacteria after the course of antibiotic therapy is completed? Of course.

In the pharmacy are sold special drugs - prebiotics, which contain lacto- and bifidobacteria for the restoration of microflora.

Some readers believe that lactic acid products are extremely useful for the gastrointestinal tract. Should be disappointed: when taking antibiotics, the effect may be reversed. It is better to pay attention to food during illness.

Menu during illness

Have not thought, why do children like to be ill? Remember yourself in childhood: not only the attention of adults, but the abundance of goodies on the table softens all the negative aspects of the disease.

Indeed, during illness there is reason to treat yourself to delicacies. It is recommended to include the following products in the patient menu:

  • Low-fat meat (turkey, veal, chicken, rabbit meat);
  • fish of any sort, ear;
  • caviar;
  • vegetables and fruits;
  • berries;
  • juices (especially apple, orange, strawberry, peach).

Meat and fish are rich in animal protein, which stimulates the activity of antibiotics. It is best to eat these foods in stew, boiled or steamed. Forget about fried meat: it will not benefit the body.

Not suitable for cooking and microwave: it makes proteins less nutritious. About 200-250 grams of fish or meat are recommended per day.

Vegetables and fruits help to restore the microflora lost after using antibiotics. The leader in this list is sauerkraut. In addition, it has a lot of vitamin C, which helps fight infection.

Since most colds occur in the winter, it is difficult to find fresh vegetables and fruits.

Eat lemons: cook soup with it, put it in tea. A day is recommended to eat at least 1 lemon.
However, with citrus too, I advise you to be cautious. Carefully read the annotations to the medicine, with what substances it is combined.

A lot of modern drugs disintegrate in an acidic environment, so that with simultaneous administration of antibiotics and citrus fruits, a reverse effect can occur.

Do not like some antibiotics and sour-milk products. In addition, yogurt, yogurt, yogurt is not the best prevention of dysbacteriosis, as many think.

They contain "non-native" bacteria for our organism. So it is preferable not to abuse milk during illness and especially not to drink medicine to them.

Than to treat a dysbacteriosis? The best option - prebiotics, vegetables and fruits, my dear readers! Fiber stimulates digestion, and prebiotics will help her in this.

How to drink antibiotics?

Do you know how much you need to drink antibiotics? - Not more than 7 days. This period is enough to cure. Each tablet or capsule should be washed down with -1 glass of boiled water.

Preparations with sulfonamides prefer an alkaline medium: it is best to wash them with mineral water. During the intake of antibiotics it is recommended to consume as much liquid as possible - up to, liter per day.

Fans of coffee, tea, carbonated and sour-milk drinks should stand the interval of 1 hour after you drank antibiotics.

Tannins in their composition reduce the activity of antibiotics, and the infection remains in its place. About alcohol and say nothing: take alcohol during treatment categorically not.

And in general, read the instruction manual carefully, I tell you as a person who burned it. In the summer I fell ill with sinusitis and the doctor prescribed a course of antibiotics. Well, I'm a pharmacist and generally all about them, about medicines, I know. And did not even bother to read the annotation more carefully.

In summer, in the heat, I really like to drink a glass of cold beer and of course during antibiotic therapy I did not drink it, but here the course is over and I drank a glass with a clear conscience.

What has started here, you can not imagine: noise in the ears, tachycardia, arms are afraid. And nothing helps - neither corvalol nor valerian. A few hours later I was released. And in the annotation in black and white it was written not to take alcohol for another five days after the end of the course. Here and so!

If you want to learn more about how to maintain the health of your family, I recommend that you watch the video course "Children's Health from A to Z". Here you will find valuable advice on how to act during illness, what kind of prevention to take to maintain strong immunity.

I think now you understand how important nutrition is for the effectiveness of treatment during illness. If they are not observed, taking antibiotics will only disrupt the microflora, but not kill the pathogenic bacteria.

Do not ignore the advice of doctors and instructions for medication. They are given not to complicate your life, but to maintain your health.

How to maintain the intestine during antibiotics

Antibiotics are known to kill not only pathogenic bacteria, but also useful, without which normal digestion is simply impossible. How to support the intestines with antibiotic therapy?

Antibiotics and diet

First of all, before you start drinking antibiotics, carefully read the instructions to them. For some antibacterial drugs, foods that are incompatible with their intake are indicated. For example, tetracycline and erythromycin require the exclusion of sour-milk and dairy products from the diet, and some of them the newest antibiotics lose their effectiveness in an acidic environment, that is, they exclude the use of any sour juices, milk etc.

In addition, an important aspect is the drinking regime. During treatmentantibacterial agentsit is necessary to increase the amount of liquid to be drunk to, liters per day, as well as to completely abandon the use of alcoholic beverages, since the load on the liver is already high. However, remember that you should not drink your food with water.

Among foods it is recommended to lean on:

lean meat and fish (preferably steamed or boiled);

boiled eggs (hard boiled);

bakery products from wholemeal flour, with bran (give priority to black bread);

vegetables (pumpkin, cabbage of all sorts, beets, carrots, zucchini);

fruit (apples, bananas, all sweet fruits, dried fruits);

Refuse from fatty, fried, canned food, smoked foods and semi-finished products.

Thanks to this diet, the load on the liver decreases, antibiotics are less likely to disrupt peristalsis (with a high intake of fiber and dietary fiber), and beneficial bacteria get a chance survive.

How else to support the intestines?

Everyone has heard about probiotic preparations, but not everyone knows that there are also no less effective prebiotics. These are substances that help to eliminate infringement of microflora by selectively stimulating biological activity and / or growth of beneficial bacteria.

Prebiotics primarily include carbohydrates that enter the intestines undigested after passing the upper gastrointestinal tract. These are components of dietary fiber, as well as inulin (fructose polymer), serving as food for normal microflora. During their breakdown, organic acids are formed that prevent the development of pathogenic bacteria. Taking antibiotics, you can support the intestines not only with medicinal probiotic drugs (most common preparations of lactulose), but also natural resources, such as Jerusalem artichoke, chicory roots, artichokes and dandelion roots, containing inulin.

Antibiotics and probiotics

Probiotics are drugs orDietary supplements. containing living non-pathogenic bacteria. Nowadays there is a "fashion" to take them both during antibiotic treatment, and after, and sometimes even just so. However, the expediency of their reception is another.

First, taking probiotics and antibiotics at the same time, you do not give any chance to useful bacteria to linger in the intestines, in fact, even if the bacteria "fed" before that, which represent a normal microflora of the intestine, die, what can we say about "Beginners".

Secondly, there are several other aspects that call into question the effectiveness of taking probiotics in principle:

the qualitative composition of the intestinal microflora is individual and depends on the characteristics of human nutrition, the state enzymatic activity of the glands, existing diseases and even the country of residence, because the universal probiotic can not;

if against the background of taking antibiotics dysbiosis develops 1-2 degrees, then specific treatment is not required, since with a balanced diet, the microflora is restored itself;

It is proved that the maximum number of bacteria from probiotic drugs surviving after the destructive effects of gastric and intestinal juice does not exceed 10%.
