Oh Yes, definatley look into taking a probiotic... I have been taking Culturelle for quite a while now and had really made a difference in how I feel on a day-to-day basis. I was a skeptic about
probiotics at first, but after using it for a week or so, the difference was so obvoius that I really rave about
them to others with IBD.
You can get Culturelle at most drugstores, and it's not that expensive either, I pay about 20 bucks for a 30 day supply. There are a bunch of different ones, but my pharmacist reccomends Culturelle because it has clinical studies proving that it works.
