Yay! That's awesome!

How is he having you taper? One a week? Just curious, b/c I'm hoping my GI tells me I can do the same at my appt. in November.

Hi Sara14,
I am new to Healingwell.com forum...i noticed you take Nature's Way reuteri (which i bought and am nervous to take) Wanted to ask you if you noticed any side effects from it?? Like wicked gas and the like???

sitnpretty - Welcome to the forum. I've found this to be a great place. I haven't noticed any side effects (no gas or anything) from the reuteri, but I think some people may have some gas after first starting any probiotic. I think it usually it takes about a month for your body to adjust. Another forum member, pb4, takes this probiotic and would probably know more about it than I. She may have more information on it for you. You may want to start a new post if you have any other questions on it or do a search on the top of the page for probiotics.
