I have crohns through out my small intestense and want to try this probiotic.Is it better to go with using the powdered form or the pill form? I would think if I use the pill form it may not effect the small intesteins by the time the pill desolves.Does anyone have any input on this.
Thanks Vid53

I don't know which form is the "best" to take, but I take it in the pearl form. They don't have to be refrigerated and are tiny little pearl like balls.
CD dx'd Aug 05. Initially on Pentasa, then Imuran 125 mg. Started Humira (very reluctantly) on 10/24/07. Currently on Humira, Imuran and Entorcort. Hope to dc Imuran and Entorcort within one month of starting Humira.

I take the pill form.  Didn't know it came in a powder.  I have CD in the small intestines also.  I've been feeling better since I've started taking it, but also on remicade, so may be a combination of both.

I started with the powder and then moved onto the pills, I found no difference between the 2 forms...they both work great for me...just remember that it's vital you continue with it daily even if you're in remission.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)
