Has anyone noticed an increase in anxiety/panic when taking probiotics?
 
I've been taking them on and off for a year now (I have lyme disease) and since I have panic disorder, I never paid attention.
Well I've been feeling great these last few weeks and have had little anxiety.

This morning I had a sore stomach (diarrhea) and decided to take a probiotic. I didn't think anything of it, but then I started to feel anxious, rage sort or and panic.
 
I had to go out for a bit and I kept thinking, why is my anxiety all of a sudden so high. I've not taken anything other than the probiotic
Then looked in my food journal and saw te days I took probiotics I wrote anxiety was high
 
Just a coincidence?

I found another site where someone said they felt the same as me here

You pose an interesting question. Hmmmm....

I've never felt anxious with any of my probiotics. But, we're all different. Have you tried switching your probiotic to see if that has any effect?

Considering probiotics are nothing more than friendly bacteria, I'm doubtful that there could be a connection to anxiety...of course just about anything's possible but this is likely very slim.
