  1. Dear wdwmaggie,

    Have you been tested for an overgrowth of yeast? I may have that. Antibiotics irritate it. When yeast candida overgrows, it can cause over 100 different symptoms! It has even been linked to schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, autism, ADD, ADHD, fibromylgia, food allergies and sensitivities, ulcerative colitis, IBS, hypoglycemia, and so many other difficulties. Upon treatment with a special diet, as well as herbal or prescription antifungals, sufferers get better. Candida supresses your immunity. L. Acidophillus alone will help, but not as much as a holistic approach will involving diet and the other factors. If you like, I could send you the essay I wrote on it. Just tell me your e-mail, or e-mail me at rainbow_geisha@hotmail.com and I will send it directly. I know the misery of being sick and tired constantly.

    I am currently on antibiotics again, and it is hard on my system. Anyway, if you would like more info on Candida, just say the word! :)



    No, I dont think I have ever been tested, but I would definitely like more information on Candida because I was reecently diagnosed with fibromylgia! My emial is Maggs11189@yahoo.com. Thank you! Maggie

  2. I have been on antibiotics for chronic sinus infections, and recently i had tonsilitis. I always get sick, once I do something a little strenous I get sick, but I also have a lot of medical problems.

    Dear miles2go,

    I thought the Z-Pak had gluten. According to one of the lists I read, it was not allowed. Maybe it was outdated? It is wonderful if it is safe. It is gentler on your system than most of them.



    Dear Kiki,

    Have you tried cranberry juice or even better unsweetened blueberry juice for UTIs? Cranberry juice got rid of my UTI when I had one that was extremely painful several years ago. Drink two cups daily.

    The acid in it kills and flushes out the bacteria E. Coli from your bladder. Isn't that strange that the same dangerous bacteria that causes food poisoning also causes UTIs? If you must take an antibiotic, taking probiotics like L. Acidophillus while you are on them can keep your microflora in balance. The problem with antibiotics is, they kill all bacteria, not just the bad. It cannot distinguish between good and bad bacteria. I am sensitive to many antibiotics as well, so I can relate to everyone on the board.



    Dear wdwmaggie,

    I am sensitive to a lot of drugs as well. Antibiotics that do not nearly kill me are rare. My stomach does not tolerate them. As a child, I practically lived off of Arithromycin. The gentlest on my stomach was probably Flagyl. Metronidozole is its generic name. It actually helps with the diarrhea. Also, as everyone else mentioned on this site, make sure you eat enough before taking your medications, and take them every six hours. Do not overdose. Some foods that are enough to take your meds with include :

    1 cup of Dinty Moore Beef Stew

    1 bowl of Cocoa or Fruity Pebbles with soymilk, rice milk or milk of your choice

    1 can tuna with 4 gluten - free crackers

    Anyway, you get the idea. Also, antibiotics destroy all the bacteria in your body. It does not distinguish between good and bad bacteria. Your microflora in your intestines can get out of balance as a result of that.

    Taking probiotic supplements will help. L. Acidophillus is very helpful. B)



    Thanks for the response! I acutally started taking the L. Acidophillus and I have noticed a little difference, but not much.

  3. I hope someone can help me....ever since I was diagnosed with celiac disease I cant tolerate many antibiotics. My doctors have tried Amoxicillan, Augmentin, Omnicef, Penicillin, Keflex, and Z-pak. All of those kill my stomach I either get really bad stomach aches, diarrhea, or throw up. My doctors always just tell me "you have a senstitive stomach." but before I was diagnosed with celiac I could tolerate antibiotics. Just wondering if theres anyone else who is experiencing the same thing and why is my stomach so sensitive now, after I've been diagnosed?
