Any friends here using Culturelle twice a day? Any problem? I like the Culturelle, thinking to increase the dosage to twice  a day. Thank you for sharing your views and experiences.           Peter

Took a lot of antibiotics for my sinus infection caused by allergy, Augmentin and triple antibiotics regimen. Now qualilfy to join UC team.
 
Dx in 2007. Proctitis only( party of Ulcerative Colitis). Mild Hemorrhoid. Fish oil 2 capules twice a day, helps. Alo Vera sometimes helps. Propolis helped quit bit, but had to stop due to allergy issue.

Does it not say you can take two daily on the package?

a little research found this...says one or two daily for adults.

~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily

Two shouldn't be a problem. I've used two a day in the past. Especially good while on antibiotics!
