After 12 days of culturelle I feel it may, MAY, be staring to work, but bloats a lot and gives more gas. Formed stools for three days, followed by a day today of unfortunate backsliding. Anyone here who uses it, how long would it take to show real results?

Hey Mitzo,
I take Culturelle daily and I never had any issues with it, not even the first few days on it.
I think the rule of thumb around here with probiotics is to give it at least 2 weeks. If you're not feeling any better, or the gas and bloating hasn't gone away, then it's probably time to try another.
I recently started taking Align (which is highly reputable) and it seems to be great. Maybe it is one you can try.

Thanks. It is hard to say whether the culturelle is working, after now about 13 days. I guess the several remarkably good days it gave me is a sign that I might as well continue in hope that it will make a gradual change. After a long long time of daily D, anything that might help at all is a godsend.

I suppose a full month of culturelle to really give it a chance - since it has to work on a pretty deep rooted and messy situation in my guts?
