I take these.  Not sure if they really work or not because I've taken them for so long and haven't gone off them to see.  When I went to the Dr. last time he asked me to tell him everything I take and told me to stop a few things (like fish oil???) but told me to continue taking probiotics as he said they are good for your system.
Take care, Softy

I'm having gut issues and he said fish oil can sometimes contribute to this.
 
I found this on the Mayo clinic website;
 
Gastrointestinal upset is common with the use of fish oil supplements. Diarrhea may also occur, with potentially severe diarrhea at very high doses. There are also reports of increased burping, acid reflux/heartburn/indigestion, abdominal bloating, and abdominal pain. Fishy aftertaste is a common effect. Gastrointestinal side effects can be minimized if fish oils are taken with meals and if doses are started low and gradually increased.
Take care, Softy

I have crohn's and IBS and do well with omegas 3-6-9 fish oils as well as vitamin A fish oils and I do well with a probiotic called Primadophilus Reuteri made by natures way, it also aids with lactose intolerance, high cholesterol and for women vaginal health (of course men can take it too).
