I got strep throat over the last week and decided to go ahead with the antibiotics and take piobiotics in the am along with. I am almost better, just a lingering sick feeling- however I am so nauseated tonight! Could the medicine be doing that, is it because I am eating so little atm and I should be taking it with more food? I just do not feel like eating much when I am sick- mostly I am juicing and eating fruit and small salads.
any ideas to combat the nausea? :(
( I am going to take all the meds, I have been pretty med free for some time so I am not going to stress or argue about that part- in my opinion strep is not to be triflied with. )

Antibiotics certainly can cause upset stomach. Erythromycin makes me throw up. I don't know which one you are taking. They all seem to have different side effects. Some need to be taken with food and others not. Do a search of the one you are taking and the side effects.

Ginger root as a suggestion. Chew on it or put a bunch of chopped raw ginger in your smoothies or juices. It usually ends nausea almost immediately for me.
Organic peppermint tea is not raw, but also helps.

Probiotics should always be taken hours away from meds.

My kids never have much of an appetite when they're sick and I usually only give them very light foods until they feel like eating more....apple juice and fresh apple sauce etc. Hope you get well quickly.

what is wonderful now is that when I do get sick, I heal faster...and also my body really tells me what I need food wise. Used to be I would get sick and want nothing but grilled cheese and crackers=) Now I feel like green juice and taking it easy.
Thank you for the advice on not talking the meds and piobiotics together, I did that today.
I have always been prone to getting sick, ever since I was a kid...my immune system has a long way to go but its getting there!:D
