I have been suffering with alot of gas and bloating lately after I eat anything, kinda making me uncomfortable. So I called the GI and he is putting me on Cipro for a week and told me to maybe try a different probiotic. Just was curious, if I have a little bacterial imbalance and take the Cipro, isn't that just killing off more of my good bacteria? Kinda defeating the purpost so to speak? That always confuses me.
I am thinking of trying Pb4's Primadolphilus Reuteri as many seem to have good luck with it. I was taking Digestive Advantage Lactose Intolerant probiotic, but they changed it from a caplet to a capsule and after that change it started making me sick so I quit that probiotic and just increased my lactobacillus one. Evidently its not enough for me, hence the change to a new probiotic.
