My GI gave me samples of a probiotic called Align today. Has anyone else used this or ever heard of it? I guess I will give it a try. It's possible that my Remicade treatments aren't as effective as they used to be. I am experiencing more days during the month with UC symptoms than I have in the past 2 years while being on Remicade. I have a colonoscopy scheduled for March to see what, if anything, is going on in there. My GI even suggested switching to Humira if Remicade is no longer effective. In the mean time, I am going to start taking probiotics again and I guess that I will start with the samples of Align.

Hi, my doc also gave me samples of Align because he thinks that I should be taking a probiotic.  The good thing about Align is that it doesn't have to be refrigerated.  Align is by the same people as Metamucil.  I'm not sure if it works any better/different then anything else out there.  It's worth a shot though!
