Cefixime is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is commonly used to treat bacterial infections. Lactic acid bacteria (LB) are a group of bacteria that are commonly used as probiotics or in fermented food production.
It is not common to use cefixime together with lactic acid bacteria (LB), as they serve different purposes. Cefixime works by inhibiting the growth of bacteria, while LB are beneficial bacteria that can improve gut health and immune function.
However, if you are taking cefixime for a bacterial infection, it is recommended to take probiotics or consume fermented foods to help restore the balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut, which may have been disrupted by the antibiotic. This can help reduce the risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhea and other gastrointestinal side effects.
