Probiotics Reduced Diarrhea and Side Effects of Antibiotics

Probiotics for diarrhea
Study Title: Probiotics reduce symptoms of antibiotic use in a hospital setting: a randomized dose response study.
Number of Participants: 508
Length of Study: 7 Days
Type of Study: Randomized Clinical Trial
Publication: Vaccine
Study Result: Probiotic use reduced the incidence of diarrhea, bloating, and cramping by half in patients whose diarrhea was caused by antibiotics.

In this randomized clinical trial, probiotics in differing potencies were given to patients on antibiotic therapy. The severity of digestive side effects from the antibiotic – bloating, cramping, and diarrhea – were measured in the groups receiving high dose antibiotics, low dose antibiotics, and no probiotics.

The group receiving high dose probiotics were almost 50% less likely to have diarrhea than the group who did not take probiotics after antibiotic therapy.

The researchers concluded:

“The tested four strain probiotic combination appears to lower the risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhea and gastrointestinal symptoms in a dose-dependent manner in adult in-patients.”
