Diet & Lifestyle Advise

  • It would be best to take probiotics after taking the full course of Accazi Oral Suspension to restore some healthy bacteria in the intestine that may have been killed. Taking probiotics after antibiotic treatment can reduce the risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhoea. Certain fermented foods like yoghurt, cheese, sauerkraut and kimchi can help restore the intestine's good bacteria.

  • Include more fibre-enriched food in your diet, as it can be easily digested by gut bacteria which helps stimulate their growth. Thus fibre foods may help restore healthy gut bacteria after taking a course of antibiotics. Whole grains like whole-grain bread, and brown rice, should be included in your diet.

  • Avoid taking too much calcium enriched foods and drinks as it might affect the working of Accazi Oral Suspension.

  • Avoid intake of alcoholic beverages with Accazi Oral Suspension as it can make you dehydrated and affect your sleep. This can make it harder for your body to aid the Accazi Oral Suspension in fighting off infections.
