I am in a bad flare-up despite just having two injections of Humira a week ago. My doctor is doing a stool study just to rule out a possible parasite. We are going to start Tetracyline (antibiotic) just in case. I am not thrilled about
this, but I actually have used it in lieu of Flagyl in the past and it helped calm things down.
He also gave me samples of VSL #3. Has anyone had any experience with using this probiotic? I read online about it and it recommended not taking it in conjunction with an antibiotic. Hmmm, makes sense. I also wasn't sure if it would be good to start something new in the middle of a flare-up. I am lactose intolerant, so I hope the traces of dairy are minimal??
