Do you know why he's on it, because one of the reasons for it is a form of severe diarrhea called c. diff. Talk to his doc before giving him anything, because in c diff you pretty much have to poop the toxin out. I doubt probiotics would hurt, but the doc needs to know. Be sure he is kept hydrated, he's loosing alot of fluid. Eating things like active culture yogurt helps alot too.
