Who Has Used Prebiotics And Is It Effective In Helping Ibs ? Does It Help To Take Probiotics Too ?

Who Has Used Prebiotics And Is It Effective In Helping Ibs ? Does It Help To Take Probiotics Too ?

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 !

Hello. I have ibs-d and aside from bentyl I don't really take anything aside from occasional Imodium. My doctor recommended probiotics and I was wondering if anyone had had any relief with them. If so, what kind? Thanks!
