I haven't had diarrhea from any probiotics...but I believe it's possible. It is changing the environment in your GI tract.

I wouldn't take anymore until your diarrhea subsides.

Something that may help you is bone broth.

Maybe after this you should reintroduce probiotics via food: Kefir, sauerkraut. And after a few weeks taking those, you could try reintroducing the VSL#3 but start even lower - maybe 15 billion total per day.

I recommend adding in Saccharomyces Boulardii + MOS. My gi issues didn't clear up until I started taking this alon side a good probiotic. I ran out recently. Only took the 100 billion probiotic, and my gi was messed up within a few days of running out.

i take s. boulardii plus pb8 plus a german probiotic with 12 bn cfu. been taking abx for 7 months now aided by this probiotic scheme and have had no stomach issues. knock on wood. actually my digestion is better now since the one before abx.

however if i take pb8 with no abx for more than 3 days in a row, it used to make me quite sick. bacteria overgrowth i guess? tried this several times to be sure....

but with abx it is really fine and we get together well.
