How can I minimize diarrhea white taking vancomycin?
It is not advisable to take anything medication wise for diarrhea when on an antibiotic without consulting your Dr but things like yogurt and probiotic supplements with live cultures can help restore good bacterial flora to the gut that are being killed by strong antibiotic. It is because the antibiotic is killing off beneficial or "good" bacteria that your system has become unbalanced and is giving you loose stools.
