Erika, I tried VSL#3 first because there was some research showing that it was effective. In addition to being inconvenient to take and very expensive, it gave me horrid gas and cramping. Now I take Natures Way Primidophilus Reuteri. It's one capsule a day, easy and convenient. It contains l. rhamnosus, l. reuteri and l. acidophilus. An added bonus is that it costs me about
30 cents a day.
