Hello, What is your experience with probiotics during a flare-up? A naturopathic doctor told me you shouldn’t take any if you are seeing blood. My son has been flaring up now forever, he has been on a few short prednisone courses but every time he stops the prednisone a new flare-up starts. His GI is talking about biologics but nothing has been decided yet. I want to give him some relief. He is convinced he is experiencing the side effects of 5-ASA, that is, apart from the flare the meds have a reverse effect. He has not stoped them yet, even though he wants to, but started taking turmeric and boswelia. I was wondering if I should add probiotics to his list.
