so i went to the dr for my headaches and she thinks they are sinus related and i probably have a sinus infection, I also have a UTI. (yeah me) so she prescribes amoxicillin. so i did some research and geez is no antibiotic safe, every single one has lists miles long of possible adverse reactions. 

although i have never known anyone irl allergic to amox, (plus my sister takes it for her uti's and she likes it). its still worrisome everytime we have to take this kind of stuff. 

no replies needed, especiaslly if you've almost died taking it or something, lol just a small vent

Yeah.  Only take what you absolutely need, and try to stay well the rest of the time!    It always works better if you don't take it often.  Do add some probiotics too.

So does aspirin, Tylenol, ibuprofen, any medication, really.  Along with vitamins, processed foods, and most anything else you use in your life.

 the neti pot aka the nose douche works really well for sinuses and stuffy noses but sometimes ya just need antibiotics. superbugs are basically caused by people not taking the script as directed (taking them until you start feeling better) as long as you take them x amount of times for x amount of days until they are gone then your body doesnt get immune to them

I feel the same way. I am really nervous about taking any antibiotics and I've had bad reactions from a couple.

why does everyone say eat yogurt ten?

Quoting Lynette:

yogert contains too much sugar making the probiotic ineffective.  Better to buy capsules(you want ones that are refrigerated).  You can buy them at a health food or supplement type store.  I have even seen them in the refrigerated case in the natural foods section of my grocery store.

after that cycle of antibiotics do a cycle of probiotics to keep away any bad side effects, heal your gut.

yeah i'm pretty lucky, none of us really need them that much. actually ydd gets them the most for uti's, wish i could find something natural for her. until then i have no choice really.

oh and i was thinking about getting one of those, i swa some at work.

Every time you take any antibiotic you do irreparable damage to your intestines. I try not to take them and I'm allergic to a bunch of them. lol

because advertiserswant to sell their product.  And people are affected by advertisers. Years ago doctors sed to actually prescribe probiotics for people after the antibiotics to prevent yeast issues and to boost back up their immune systems.
