Thanks to both of you. I took another dose last night because I do feel as though this product is helping (level everything out in my lower gut). I don't actually have D, but experience up to 20 bm's a day and my stool can vary, which is very annoying - the dumping after a meal, the dreaded putty stage (I hate this stage, so messy, I need more than 1 flush). A few times I've experienced D but mostly since I have no where inside for stool to collect and back up, it just keeps coming and coming, as long as I continue to eat. That is the only thing that can effectively stop bm's - eliminate solids and it all quiets down. I of course continue to consume fluids but on a regular basis eat light when traveling, skip dinner before a social event, etc.
But even on top of doing all that, my gut can be rather noisy, I feel pregnant again and my daughters are 19 and 22! My stomach can heave, roll, swell up to where I do look pregnant again (which looks really out of place on someone my age, I'm turning 55 in 3 weeks!).
I did notice the Nature's Way 5 Billion helped, even doubling it. But it wasn't enough.
I also feel a little better this morning, I saw online the Critical Care one with 200 Billion. 50 isn't freaking me out as much now that I know some of you might take 200!
Thanks so much for your input. Appreciate it.
