Hi....I don't know what to advise since I'm pretty much hardcore mainstream meds.
You should, however, do lots of research before you make the decision to take the proposed prescript
ion....they are still "drugs".
I know your situation is fairly complicated regarding not being able to take certain meds.....It could be worth your try.
You should, however, be on probiotics.
I always feel crappy when I take fish oil....that could be an issue with you. Are you still taking it? You can eat the Omega 3 instead of taking the oil.
I know the data says it's good, but really...I don't feel good when taking it, gut-wise.
It wouldn't hurt to not take it for a while to see.
Hope someone else will chime in ....maybe create another thread enquiring in the title.
Sorry I can't be of much help....

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
