I saw an ad at Rite Aid for "free" probiotic. I bought this Natrol Probiotic intestinal Maximum Care.

Has anyone tried this one?

I guess my theory was what can it hurt if is was free!!!???

That is how I started on Align.  It works good for me - in about two weeks I had formed stools and they remain that way.  I also tried Philips and another one recommended by friend, Primal Defense.  I found the last two gave me too much gas I could not overcome in time.  No harm in trying them - especially free and my doctor gave me enough for one month.
