I've been reading up on probiotics and crohn's, and I know a lot of you are taking them. My question is, can you take too many probiotics?
I just started taking Prednisone, and I know it can lower your immune system, so I thought it would be a good idea to take some. I was taking Digestive Advantage for Crohn's and Colitis twice a day before, but it didn't help my diarrhea, so I stopped taking it. Instead, I just bought Florastor, and I purchased Philips Colon Health yesterday. They have different strains of bacteria in them, so I figured it would be OK to use them both at the same time. I also eat yogurt daily.
Do any of you know if taking too many different probiotics can have a negative effect on my diarrhea, or anything else health-wise?
