Irina, 34 years old < / strong> : The probiotic Linex was assigned to us by a doctor together with an antibiotic. My baby does not even feel it – in every meal I mix powder with sweet water and give it a drink to him, which he does with pleasure. We did not have problems with the intestines and an imbalance of bacteria. The only negative is the high price of the medicine.
Sophia, 57 years old < / strong> : She gave her daughter Linex according to the instructions after taking the antibiotic no later than 3 hours. We clearly observed this rule and the normal dose, but diarrhea started anyway. Next time I would prefer another drug to restore the microflora to the baby’s gut.
Natalia, 41 years old < / strong> : My doctor, Linex, was prescribed by a doctor to deal with Staphylococcus aureus in parallel with other drugs. While the probiotic with live bacteria was taken – the son slept peacefully, diarrhea and flatulence retreated, the stomach did not hurt. But as soon as they stopped drinking it, the next day the problems returned. Gastroenterologist explained that the good bacteria in his son did not linger, and prescribed other drugs for staphylococcus, which helped us. < P
Angelica, 39 years old < / strong> : Linex was assigned to her teenage son during antibiotic therapy. The treatment is not cheap – for 1 course you need 3 packs (10 bags each), but they do not save on health.
