I use packets, which are double strength of capsules. I take a flavored one first thing in the morning with 16 oz water. The second packet is unflavored and I take it after supper with applesauce or yogurt, etc. Since digestion is slower while sleeping, I'm hoping it gives the bacteria longer to colonize.
