pb4 you are the best expert I have on the probiotics.  I finally tried to take Primadophalus Reuteri.  I had started it on Monday, took it Tuesday and on Wednesday I felt nauseous and light headed and crampy.  I didn't take it Wednesday, but took it Thursday and Friday.  By Friday afternoon, I was feeling over heated, backed up, nauseous.  Saturday I was completely knocked down and could not eat a thing.
 
I was wondering...am I reacting to the fact that the probiotic stopped me from running to the bathroom.  Do you think my system jsut isn't used to holding onto stuff for that long and reacted?  I was only going once a day and that was a struggle
 
I am the type that has odd reactions to meds so I have no ideas other than my body did not like "late trash drop off".  Do you have any ideas????
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

WOW, that sucks, I never went through anything like that...I don't really know why something like that would happen from the Primadophilus, it's simply friendly bacteria though I have heard many people say that they felt gross in the beginning of taking probiotics (a variety of different brands) and that those are likely symptoms of bad bacterial die off. You are only taking one/day? Thing is friendly bacteria isn't really considered a medication so I'd chalking it up to die off and this should resolve itself once your gut flora is balanced, you must have alot of bacterial overgrowth to be reacting from friendly bacteria this way is my guess.

I hope you feel better soon, you could ask your GP or GI what they make of it or even a pharmacist.
