Yeah, the florastor is a probiotic and not the same of course as the symax.
Have you ever heard of gut directed hypnotherapy for IBS which can be very effective for most people and a natrual treatment. There is some 20 years of research behind it.
This is from the IFFGD.
"Several years ago we published an audit of the first 250 patients treated and found that hypnosis not only helps the symptoms of IBS but also significantly improves quality of life.1 Interestingly, it also relieves the additional symptoms from which so many patients with IBS suffer such as nausea, lethargy, backache, and urinary problems. This is in sharp contrast to the medications currently available for IBS, which often help one or two symptoms if at all."
It really helped me personally.

Please make sure you have your symptoms diagnosed by a medical practitioner or a doctor.
