What can I eat/take to prevent thrush while on antibiotics?

Having my gallbladder out tomorrow and I'm almost positive I'll have to take preventative antibiotics...I'm afraid of getting thrush since that would just be my luck. Thanks!

Eat a yogurt a day. It has live/active cultures in it that will replace what the antibiotics kill. The doctor I used to work for always recommended that. I have only ever not ate yogurt one time while taking an antibiotic and that is the one time in my life that I got a yeast infection. I swear by the yogurt thing.

I agree with the probiotic , acidephilus i think is what the one is called that I was told to take- or if you dont want to do that, definately eat a yogurt everyday, the live cultures are the same as the probiotic.

and fwiw, i had my gallbladder taken out and nursed straight through it and never had any antibiodics.

I agree with everyone else - probiotic, otherwise known as acidophilus

Yep- probiotics work great, but my advice is to not get the dried ones from walgreens etc, go to a health food store and get the refrigerated capsules with live cultures in them. Acidophilus, bifidus...

yep, probiotcs - and if you really want to go full-on preventative, you could also take grapefruitseed extract capsules and garlic capsules.

Yes, probiotics. Get quality ones that require refridgeration. And I'd go for those over yogurt...they're FAR more potent, and don't have any added sugar.
