When I was diagnosed back in aug 2008, my GI said taking pro-biotics was not a bad idea. So I went to GNC and bought what they had. "Pro-Biotics Acidophilus 14 Billion good bacteria" Since having found this site and reading the posts I now have questions. I've never tried not taking these pills so I don't reaaly know if they are helping in my case or not. But from my doc recomending them and all your positive posts I will keep taking them.
My question now to you all is Am I taking the right one? Or a strong enough one? I wil also ask this question of my doc when I see him in a couple weeks, but if you all have any insight for me I might make the change before then as he didn't specify which one to take. I take currently take one at lunch and one at bed.
I also have heard that some of these need to be kept refrigerated? This would not be an option for me unless they could be taken together and at night. THere is no refridge available during the day for me. And I already take way to many morning pills.
