Is there any probiotics that someone can advice to take with the abx?
I have a sensitive gut and need a lot of probiotics in order to be able to stand my long-term abx treatment. I use VSL3. I also found raw sauerkraut very helpful for my digestion. I used to take kefir and it was very good but I have recently replaced it with a more complex probiotic drink called MAF878 (mix of yogurt, kefir and other) which is also supposed to stimulate macrophages eating up microbes.

It's quite funny to watch the bits of fruit rise up and down in the ferment. Very strongly coloured fruit gets bleached over the course of the ferment: usually four days.
If you are taking to the first two abx easily, you could start metronidazole after three months, otherwise leave it longer. I didn't feel anything the first time I took it, but it hit me the third time, so be warned!
