I took 6 packets a day for three months. It didn't affect my flare at all, but did give me more gas and cramping. They recommend 4-8 packets a day while flaring ($300 - 575/month) and 1-2 when in remission ($80 - 150.)
Primadophilus Reuteri capsules (90 for $21 including shipping) seem to work better for me, and the cost is about
$7 a month. You just have to try things to see what works for you.
