I'm taking All-Flora by New Chapter - it doesn't say anything on the bottle about reactions, just to take 2/day, which I am doing. I was told to take it at least 2 hours away from the Asocol, which I take at meals, so I've been taking it before I go to bed.
Sometimes it seams like everything you do to try to help yourself causes an equal negative reaction!

It sounds all healthy to me, maybe someone else knows better?

Hi Mikey's Mommy,
Hope Mikey's doing okay these days. I've read about how it's becoming such a common occurence. Have you had any success so far treating him with the probiotics or "chelating"? I've personally always thought I get a reaction to any probiotics with Acidophilus in them so I always stop taking them. It's usually bad acne, excessive gas & unbearable constipation. No problems with any other strains.
This time I'm going to try and stick out for at least a month to see for sure. I've seen on other forums, that people had the herx start even at the end of the 2nd week, and have had it last bad through the 5th week. But smooth sailing from then on.
Right now I'm taking Dr. Ohhira's, which is highly recommended, but expensive. It's been a week (1 pill before meals) and my hands get so cold they turn purple everyday about 3-4 hrs after a pill (although I do live in Canada) & then when they warm up my knuckles burrn (ahhh, like a chemical burn on my skin). I think it's eczema? Every day it gets a little worse. Never experienced this before, so I'm hoping its a herx.
Other than the extreme cold and burning knuckles, I'm seeing no other major side effects besides a bit of brain fog & gassiness but on a plus I am seeing reduced IgE mediated food allergies (which is why I'm taking them in the first place) and solid bowel movements.
If you're interested, I'll keep you posted for week two.
