I"ve been taking Bactrim DS on alternate days for a number of years. Although aware of the need to balance an anti-biotic with acidophilus pills, it didn't occur to me until moments ago that this may apply to Bactrim DS. I would be very grateful for any guidance on this matter.

Verwon Says:

Why have you been taking it for that long?

Prolonged use of an antibiotic creates the very real risk of developing antibiotic resistance. This means that if you get an infection, it may not respond to treatment with most antibiotics and could place you in very real danger.

The information discussed in this thread applies to any antibiotic, of any type. They all require careful use and can disrupt the balance in your body.
