I tried Renew Life Probiotic for a month and it didnt fix my loose stools every morning. I switched to Digestive Advantage IBS for a whie and no luck after a few weeks of that. Now, I am trying Digestive Advantage Lactose Intolerance and it's been just a week with this. I'm ready to give up on this too...but think I should probably keep taking it. How long are you supposed to give these things to work? I'm sick of being sick :(

I heard that the Digestive Advantage for Chrons is good if you are ibs-d. The Digestive Advantage that is actually for ibs might make your symptoms worse. So give that one a try.

Have you tried increasing your Calcium? That is something that is mentioned often. I think it is Calcium Carbonate. Your situation may have nothing to do with something that probiotics would help. If I you think you are lactose intolerant you should just forget all dairy and see if it helps. The DA Lactose is for people that want to continue to eat dairy and is more for gas and upset stomach, I think than diahrea. It really isn't hard to determine if you are sensitive to dairy.

I tried Align Digestive Care Probiotic Supplements for a whole month and it didn't help at all, although in scientific studies supposedly it's the only one proven to be effective.
