Ok well I have been taking DA for nearly two months now, my wife says she has noticed a change. She says I am more apt to going out and doing things than I used to be. I am not really seeing that big a difference, just less urges I guess.

Yesterday I went and bought some acidiphilus or whatever it is from WalGreens. 1Billion + cultures is what it says, we shall see what this pill does for me in combination with DA.


OH!! and a huge side note. DO NOT take acidiphilus with Tylonol PM right before attempting to go to bed. It was weird, I was so tired and sleepy I couldn't keep my eyes open, but my body was wide awake and ready to go, I had to get up and wonder around the house for an hour, which didn't really help that much, it was totally nerver racking. Finally, I think around 1am I passed out, lol. I woke up this morning at 6:30 so tired.

Hi mrmagoo,
Glad to read that things are starting to look up for you. :-)
Remember to take the probiotics slowly. Don't go swallowing several pills at once (or even in one day). This will cause excess gas. Be prepared, however, for a little gas no matter what. It will pass when you get used to it. If not, try a different probiotic.
Good luck! And keep us posted.

BTW - Thanks for the tip about Tylenol PM & Acidophilus.

oh now you tell me lol. How should I take them? THe bottle says 3 times a day with a meal. So i took the first one last night before bed without any food lol. And then one this morning with breakfast. Should I just take two for now, and work up to three? I have noticed a bit a gas problem this morning, a bit annoying considering I look like I am pregnant or something lol, odd thing for a guy.

Don't worry about it if you have already done it and your gas is minimal. I bought a probiotic that had 4.5 billion cultures each pill. I took it in the morning (before a meal, as directed) and then by the time I ate (30 min later) I had horrible gas cramps. Had to run to the bathroom too!
I think your dosage is fine. As long as you're not taking 1 pill with massive amounts of cultures more than a couple times a day. That would for sure give you major gas.
Experiment and see what works best for you. Good luck!

Taking one Digestive Advantage a day never bothered me.  And eating a container of yogurt a day doesn't bother me.  But one acidophillus pill a day does bother me a bit with cramps.  It may be a specific culture giving you gas rather than probiotics themselves.  While acidophillus is featured in yogurt and probiotic "cocktails," it's not nearly at the dosage that you get with one pill of nothing but acidophillus. 
 
Come to think of it, I was always gassy as a kid.  Not gas cramps, that I remember, but I could just about fart on command.  My mother was a firm believer in milk with acidophillus in it.  Maybe there was a connection there?
