I was just wondering about this. Mine says take 1, 3times a day. I was just wondering would it hurt to take 2, 3 times a day. I'm not sure if one can take too much or not.

I take 3 - 4 at once nightly. What exactly is the probiotic you're taking and what exactly are the ingredients?

All you can do is try it.

Oh my, I'd avoid that brand and any other that contains any of that stuff, the one I use only has a little potatoe starch for preservation, no need for the sucrose, fructose, ect.

Primadophilus Reuteri made by natures way, only one/day is needed, it's affordable, aids with lactose intolerance, high cholesterol and for women, vaginal health (but it's fine for men too)...only downside is it must be purchased and kept cold.

I use Natural Factors Protec plus a few times a week the Primadophilus Reuteri...it's expensive for me to get through the health food store...MEGA expensive.
Although there are the Reuteri pearls that don't need to be refrigerated..at a much more affordable price for me..go figure.

One should note that the pearls only have 1 billion CFU though. The refrigerated version has 5 billion CFU.
