Just wanted to post something good for a change. I have both IBD and IBS and was having a bad flare. When my IBD gets bad, the IBS kicks in too-:) Ugh! The doc has me scheduled for more tests in the next few weeks. I started taking VSL #3 and in two days have my symptoms are going away. I take the double strength in the pouch. The other one in pill form that you get online and other probiotics never did the trick. I am hoping this keeps up. Right before I went to a GI doc, I was seeing an alternative med doc. I got her to do a stool test with Great Plains Labs and they said I had zero good bacteria in my specimen. I am glad I finally found something that works. They may have to reschedule my tests!
