Okay I took DA once before...I broke out with hives really bad, but I never actually found out if it was truely the DA that caused it or not.  I went to the doctor and everything and they didn't seem to think it was the DA.  Once I stopped taking it the hives cleared up.  It took awhile because of the DA being in my bloodstream yet, but after a lil while they went away.  I have just recently tried DA again and today my legs are broken out in hives all over again.  I've been on the DA for about 3 months or so.  Has anyone heard or have had any bad experiences with DA?  I'm going to stop taking it for good now.  I'm still not sure if that's the real cause but I will find out.

I haven't had bad experiences but that doesn't mean that you won't. Everything comes with a risk even if it only affects 1% so if it gives you problems than I would suggest discontinuing it. You always have to weigh out the goods and evils of anything and hives are no fun.

I just found out that the DA contains Aspartame and I've just got done reading that hives can be a reaction to aspartame. I never knew how bad aspartame was for a person. I read that there are many many side effects towards it.

how interesting...
i was thinking about taking DA, i have it in my medicine cabinet--is there any harm in taking it along with taking acidophilus?
what would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

No harm at all, Bunny. I say try it.... I love it.
FYI... I found the pills work better than the chewables (strange, huh?).
