The researchers further noted that these antibiotics prescribed for dental procedures kill both bad and good bacteria in the gastrointestinal (GI) system. In the absence of good bacteria our body allows the breeding of C. diff bacteria -- one of the top three most urgent antibiotic-resistant threats identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

All antibiotics kill good and bad bacteria. C. Diff is a threat on any antibiotic. Florastor is a probiotic that can prevent this from happening, a probiotic that everyone should take daily, and one that you must be on while on any prescription antimicrobials.

It's fascinating that the medical-industrial community has not incorporated probiotics in conjunction with probiotic therapy more intensely given their obvious benefits in improving gut flora after a course of antibiotics. Fortunately, the value of good probiotic supplementation has been been more recognized in the integrative medical community, e.g.:

It should be mandatory that probiotics are recommended with discharge instructions on antibiotics and with any new antibiotic prescriptions that are filled by a pharmacy IMO.

I was suprised to see probiotics prescribed in the ER in the USA as the patient was being admitted. So things are changing.
