Okay so my doctor "prescribed" Lactinex. The nurse told me on the phone to take 2 tablets, 3 times a day. She said she was also calling this in the my pharmacy, even though she knew it was OTC. Just so that they could help me find it.
Well she called it in as Lactinex Granules, not the tablets she told me on the phone. I've called her back for clarification, had to leave a message. Is one better then the other? Anyone have any experience with Lactinex? I'm such a newbie when it comes to probiotics, so any help is much appreciated.

those are good: lactobacillus bulgaricus, streptococcus thermophilus as a minimum. If you find lactobacillus acidophilus it's an extra plus. But I will say: the best bacterium have to be this one: lactobacillus casei. I think it's the same bacterium as lactobacillus rhamnosus casei. You have to google those to find out. Here you can read why:
and this side tells you about lactobacillus casei:

Read the part about probiotics and TNF - that is really interesting!
Good luck, from Ingrid
