Your healthcare professionals can’t help because they have no scientific data. A lot of people will swear by probiotics but while there is a lot of anecdotal data, there is almost no scientific data. The only one that has a little bit of scientific data is Align, and those data are sketchy. It’s expensive but ry Align for three months (best price is Costco). If it doesn’t help, anything else you try is just a guessing game.

My gastroenterologist told me that the one with the highest number of probiotics is best. We had a very good talk about this very subject. It's going to take time for them to work.
It might get expensive too.

I suffer with IBS-M. I have tried several probiotics and usually ended up with severe diarrhea. I recently bought Phillips Colon health. this works for me. it gave me diarrhea the 1st couple of times I used it, so I adjusted the number of stool softeners I also take and now it is working better than any other I have used. I think, for me, trying different probiotics till I found a working one was the most helpful.

I feel your pain. I was prescribed probiotics and they made my diarrhea worse instead of improving it. Probiotics are very tricky and I have read that probiotics are not helpful unless you combine taking them with prebiotics, because the probiotics need prebiotics to live otherwise they will simply be discarded as body waste. My own thought is that probiotics might help people with IBS-C, but don’t help us with IBS-D.
