I just started on probiotics this past weekend - I take it just before bed. Since then I've been getting very itchy hives on my hands - my knuckles are now red and sore from scratching. Could this be an allergic reaction to the probiotics? I haven't tried any new foods so I doubt it's something I ate. I also have anxiety so this could stem from that - has anyone else had this kind of reaction? Any suggestions? I plan on stopping the probiotics for a while and see what happens. Should I try a different kind or give these another chance?
I've also had very vivid dreams since I started taking them - dreams that are like full-length feature films. Could this be the probiotics too?
Thanks in advance!
I really doubt this is related in any way to the probiotics. Maybe you are allergic to the base that the probiotics are in maybe if its dairy or vegeterian.
Other than that, if the probiotics are giving you trippy dreams - I would keep taking them
