Haven't really tried probiotics. I wouldn't even know where to start with those. Which ones, how much, etc.
You can get Probiotics at the drug store. Make sure you get Probiotics and not Prebiotics. Look at the ingredients. More variants, more bacteria, more pills in the bottle, and lower the price, the better.
I take one a day. Some people take more.
Please note: it is normal for the blood to return when tapering off Prednisone, because your body produces less Cortisol when you are on Prednisone. It takes awhile for the body to increase its production of Cortisol. Give it some time.
