My granddaughter is always on antibiotics. This last time around I was quite upset with her doctor. She had a cough that lasted for a month, but when she went to the Dr. they could find absolutely nothing wrong ... so they put her on antibiotics. I personally think it is allergy related. Anyway, when I am on antibiotics I eat yogurt with live cultures or take acidophilus. I found a great product that works in this manner for kids ... Nature's Way Primadophilus for Kids. The bottle contains 30 cherry flavored chewable tablets. My daughter likes to buy her daughter gummy style vitamins, and I don't like those because the sugar sticks to her teeth. I much prefer these chewable pills. And she LOVES them. The product claims: 3 billion CFUs Bifidobacteria & Lactobacilli 3 strain formula specifically designed for kids ages 2-12 years The ingredients contains 80 mg of their proprietary blend of Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium Longum, and Lactobacillus Acidophilus. I think these are great for children who are on antibiotics a lot. It's important that we correct their intestinal flora after they have been taking antibiotics because good bacteria is killed as well as bad bacteria.
