I might have to try that, PB. The Culturelle does work when I take it when I'm on antibiotics (it keeps me from getting D while taking them and kept me from getting D after taking antibiotics time-before-last). But there's something about
it that makes it too strong or something. Even taking it before bed, I have gas cramps until mid-morning. Better than D, but it keeps me from taking it any longer than I absolutely have to. I think that's why I ran into problems after this last round of antibiotics; I stopped taking the Culturelle as soon as I stopped taking the antibiotics, forgetting that the doctor told me that those kinds of antibiotics stay in the system another week to 10 days after you stop taking the pills.
Unfortunately I can't take DA because it has sorbitol in it. I absolutely must not have so much as a trace of that stuff; 1 gram put me in the bed for 2 solid days in unbearable pain and with uncontrollable diarrhea. But I don't know what the Culturelle would have in it that my guts don't like so much, except a butt-load of probiotics. I don't have a problem with any other kinds of sugar, just the sugar alcohols.
