I have been reading that prebiotics help probiotics in controlling ibs symptoms. Some of these supplements can be costly and I am hoping to get information from other members if they use both prebiotics & probiotics. Are prebiotics really effective ? Do you find probiotics effective? Any side effects from them ? What supplements work best for you if you take these ? So many to chose from !
I use Biomel and it really makes me feel better in the morning,most of the time. You can buy it on amazon but it takes a few weeks to arrive.
My GI doctor wants me to take probiotics. For the past 6 or 7 months every time I eat Activia, or take a probiotic I GET a vaginal yeast infection. After I stop the probiotics it resolves. Anyone else have this issue? I can't find anything on Dr. Google. GI doctor said this is not possible.
I cannot eat anything with yeast in it! Bread etc.I also tried Keffir and that seemed to start up a yeast infiction. Sugarden definitely does not help. Hope the new treatment helps.
My dr. Just told me to try probiotics. Anyone try and have luck?
Also try prebiotic and probiotic.
They are 2 different things.
Use Google to see what the doctors say. Read books also.

I just recently started taking a good strong probiotic and peppermint oil caps. Has anyone else had any luck with doing this for their IBS-D?
Instead of the gelcaps, you can try really strong Peppermint tea or fennel tea. Both are very good for bloating. I have been taking a probiotic since 2012. It's just a good thing to do for the flora… read more
