"I guess my question is...is there anything I can take for the IBS (i assume) stomach aches/ab pain that won't mess up my bowels...make me constipated?" THIS IS THE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION. hehe. I'll be very curious to see what others suggest. My system is super sensitive. My dr suggested its a balance of getting the right amount and the right type of fiber. You might want to look into the following supplements. I can't remember why I started adding each one, but I think they help. Magnesium (helps move things thru system smoothly/quickly, I think), Slippery Elm (I think this one helps stomach digestion), curcumin (turmeric), L-glutamine, enzyme blend
Probiotics won't interfere with any meds. I have taken the UltraFlora and Pearls. Both seemed fine. I recently stopped taking my ultimate flora probiotics by fluke, and have been doing better. Asked dr about it and she said sometimes people only need it when they are having issues. Take it for 7-10days and stop. I don't know.
